1920's Strauch & Co. Soap Trading Cards

These attractive tiny cards are from Uruguay, measure appx. 1" X 1-3/8" with blank backs and a glossy finish on front.  There's a very small logo at left with words I've made out under a magnifying lens "La Buena Estrellas." At bottom in black it reads "Jabon de Creolina, Strauch & C. Montevideo." From Uruguay, I believe these cards were issued with a soap product (Jabon meaning soap in Spanish).

Below are images of all of the cards I've come across from this offering, which is composed of several different series.
