Simple Bogdanoff was a Russian company located in St-Petersburg - as noted on the label They had other operations throughout Europe Dansk Papirvarefabrik (stationary factory) KBK also on the label printed them and they were sent from the Russian H.O. to many distributors in Euro countries in various currencies so one could argue they are Russian, Danish, German, Belgium or French Cindys ?? gesellschaft (German= Company) is also on the label
Red Triangle Rubber Factory Originally the idea of an American entrepreneur. Many outsiders saw great potential in Russia who were eager to accept such help Started in 1860, it changed names several times and grew to an impressive complex. During WWI they made military and aviation tires. Some records indicate they made some 300 million rubber boots. It was mainly destroyed in WWII and then rebuilt. The factory is now abandoned since 2001
I agree but I still find it interesting that these labels have been printed specifically for the Bogdanoff subsidiary company (or possibly an authorised distributor) in Copenhagen: A/S A.N. Bogdanoff & Co, København.
I've seen this firm listed in a 1918 Danish business directory.
Both the product images and pricing reflect the Danish market.
I guess from the way "København ..." has been added to the company name on the first label that standard head office designs have been updated for use in Denmark.
I see that the Copenhagen firm registered a number of (unnamed) trademarks in Denmark in 1913 that were terminated in 1933. Sadly I couldn't see any references to either "MONA LISA" or "PAN".
I have read about the Red Triangle company before and it's also great to see their advertising labels here.
I look forward very much to seeing more of your collection.
