A very rare retail advertising sign made of embossed tin with mirror for the French Chocolat manugctaurer "Chocolat Menier". This company started its operation in 1837 and won several gold medals / prices at the 1878 Universal Expo in Paris for the quality of its chocolate. At the turn of the century, Chocolat Menier was the leading chocolate in France.
The famous advertising poster / sign with the little girl writing on the wall was launched in 1871 and used until 1929. So this sign is from this era. They are ultra rare and I am so grateful I was able to find one.
The sign reads: "En Vente Ici - Chocolat Menier - Eviter les contrefaçons" which translates to "Selling here - Chocolat Meunier - Avoid the counterfeit". Click on ZOOM for larger pictures.
Condition: This plate is in good vintage condition with some marks and rust. The mirror is intact with minimal markings on it. Considering these signs are ultra rare, they are quite valuable even in this condition. The patina is really nice and we can still read the message. There is a hook on the back to hang on the wall.
Dimension: 10½" (27 cm) x 15¼" (38 cm)
