Newspaper Wrapper produced for Maury in France



Advertising wrapper produced by the Maury stamp business in Paris in 1894

The "postmark" MAURY 6 BOULE MONTMARTE PARIS has been printed together with the address
Exposition de Timbres Poste
6 Boulevard Montmartre
and other advertising material in black

The printed stamp, in green, on the wrapper is inscribed SERBMIT SIRAP A YRUAM
which is MAURY A PARIS TIMBRES in reverse order.

This item was then used as a newspaper wrapper in England from Bognor to Portsmouth in 1901

I have also seen a similar item with the stamp in purple and different text on the reverse - all probably produced in 1897.
