"Yummy-Yummy-Fit for a Queen"

The Huntley-Palmer checker set is not only beautifully ornate, but it makes your mouth water just looking at their many delicious food products--many of which I am sure made it to the Queens dining room table on occasion. "Checker Trivia"? What kind of food products were they best known for? (Cont.)

Yes the Huntley-Palmer name (this company has a very long history) was well known (in European circles) for their delicious "biscuits", plus their many other fine food products. (Cont.)

I wish there was a way here on our fourm for you to add a picture of this ornate Huntley-Palmer checkers set. For the many of us that may never get an opportunity to visit the museum, pictures of items in the collection would be the next best thing.
