Horseshoes and Chocolate
The Hershey Chocolate Company did not introduce the 'maroon brown' wrapper with gold wording until about 1902. It was updated to silver lettering in 1912.
Novelty shirting was also in style late 19th century...horses, horse shoes, riding crops, playing cards and insects were favorites...usually in a red/black design on off white.
