DescriptionVin Mariani (1895). Very Fine- on Linen. Advertising Poster (15" X 22.75") & Unbacked Advertising Poster (11.5" X 15.75") Jules Chéret Artwork.
Artist Jules Chéret well captures the euphoria generated from consuming Vin Mariani, one of several "health tonics" of the day to combine wine with the hottest new pharmaceutical on the market: cocaine. Met with instant popularity, several high profile writers like Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jules Verne, and Alexander Dumas were all proponents of the beverage, as well as Pope Leo XIII. Chéret's fantastic illustration has endured well beyond its original product, offered here for the first time in advertisements designed for both French and English speaking consumers. The linenbacked poster shows a few unaddressed flaws including light edge and fold wear, as well as faint stains. Signs of use in the unbacked poster include slight edge wear, light corner bends, a couple of thin chips in the left border, and toning in the borders. It also has a couple of pieces of linen tape on the verso with tape stain bleedthrough, however these issues do not affect the grade of the linenbacked poster. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
