More about Les Prevoyants de l'Avenir: the picture of Les Prevoyants de l'Avenir is visible on many Paris souvenirs, but what is it exactly? Les Prevoyants de l'Avenir (litterally, the farsighted of the future) is a French insurance company founded in 1881 and similar to our modern pension funds. Its members were entitled to get a pension after 20 years of contribution. The picture on this tray depicts the big celebration that took place in Paris on August 13, 1893 on the Champ de Mars, by the Eiffel Tower. The Fete des 10 Millions was put together by the company to celebrate reaching 10 Million Francs in capital. Today, the company no longer exists and the party is long forgotten but the nice picture remains!
