A remarkable price list from China

In the archive collection from Erling Gilje (1894-1959), who served as ordained missionary for NMS in China 1919-1950, we have found a price list from "Scandinavian Trading Co." in Shanghai. It was issued in 1936, but corrections as of 1937 have been made by hand in blue ink.

Items such as "Goat cheese (real)", "Goat Cheese, Røldal", "Vademecum Tooth Paste" and "Karvet Blad Tobacco" were seemingly of interest and use at least for the Scandinavian personnel stationed in China.
