Maskey's Candies

I came across this pretty card from Maskey's Candies that one of the Moran's saved.  A quick google search tells me that there was a Maskey's Candies on Union St. in Nashville in the late 1800's.  Here is an example of a Trading card from the Nashville store.  It's possible this card was from that store.  

Another search brings up a 2010 obituary for Guido A. Ferrari of San Francisco, the owner of Maskey's Candies of San Francisco during the 1940's - 1950's.  I also found another Victorian trading card from San Francisco.

Perhaps it was kept for its beauty or maybe just as a remembrance of the giver, it's just one of many little keepsakes from Moran Place that we treasure.
