Description

An incredibly bright gilt-lettered sign designed for the English market showing 4 kinds of cognacs in label form in center. The top states “castle where are the vineyards and distillery” so this was obviously designed for the American English market. This image has a naive brilliance, from an era of pre-graphic design. Aside from some small metallic gold losses in the letters, this is overall in exceptional condition, certainly near mint.
