Butter wouldn't melt

I thought I remembered that I'd bought a reproduction advertisement for chocolate about 18 months ago. Maybe I did but the only card of that type I can find is this one for butter.

Beurre d'Isigny is still widely available today as a premium type of butter made in a specific area of northern France - and nowhere else is allowed use the name, rather like champagne.  The Bretel-Frères started off in 1865 by exporting eggs and salted butter to England but then in 1871 set up production of butter in Valognes. The ad dates from 1900.
