Thanks Mal.  ;D
I'm not sure his name is Henri  :'(  I'm sure Algy would have liked that!
I've seen a Lecomte out of Rouen and a Hamel mentioned.

Another page from that site looks at tokens.  http://www.jeuxanciensdecollection.com/2015/09/j-ai-les-jetons-rassurez-vous-1.html
Sadly no mention of the N&K piece. :(

Pleased to see he agrees with me about the extensive use of bone for tokens and counters.

These two paragraphs, giving dates, from that link are worth repeating here:

NK ATLAS Paris designates the games and toys factory installed on rue de l'Atlas in Paris and born from the association of NICOLAS Léon and KELLER Charles. The activity began in 1904, a year that also saw the creation of RT (Revenaz and Tabernat) and that of JJF (French toy games), JJF resulting from a concentration of companies (MD, SC ...).

From 1904 to 1924, the year that will see the management of Georges BONNET (GB) NK establishments will produce a wide variety of games, including the game boxes together filled with puzzles and small games of skill.
