Clarnico

Dec 1, 2020

I found this bookmark (from the 1930s?) within the pages of a very old copy of Mill on the Floss. (An “Everyman edition” therefore not valuable despite being 100 years old).

In the 1920s/1930s Clarnico was the largest sugar confectionery company in Britain, producing a mind-boggling 700 different varieties of sweets. Clarke Nickolls & Co began in 1872 making jam. They were taken over by Trebor in 1969 and are so forgotten they don’t even have their own Wikipedia page.
