Art Nouveau Wine / Vins Advertising Sign - Antique Gold Leaf and Sand on Wood - Folk Art

Wherever there's food, music, art, and love, there's wine. Our love affair with wine goes back thousands of years, but has never been more romantic than during La Belle Epoch in France, the luminous decade or so before the turn on the 19th C into the 20th, the era during which this fabulous Vins sign was created. Fantastic.

The lettering on this piece, is executed in a classic Art Nouveau font, rich gold leaf on a black sand ground. Big and bold, this sign is vibrant and will simply sing wherever it hangs. It's the kind of piece decorators use to 'make' a space.

CONDITION is as you see it. This is an antique sign which shows the years but still has that 'WOW' factor. A few touch-ups to the leaf across the "N" and "S" and wear to the sand background. Measures 19 1/4" x 37 3/8" overall x 1 1/2" deep. The height of the gilded letters is 8".

This piece is an invitation to good times. Hang it over a bar, put it in your restaurant... or perhaps you have a private cellar? Unleash your inner decorator. A votre sante!
