Sugar loaves, Aarberg (CH)

Contemporary Era, Europe
These two sugar loaves were manufactured by the Aarberg refinery established in 1899, and were most likely kept as reserves in case of food shortage. The large loaf shows the wrapping paper’s original colour whereas the small wrapper probably faded due to prolonged exposure to light.
