No Place of Publication. Cie Des Antilles. No date. Ca. 1890s.
Vintage color advertising printed on a textured paper sheet 8 1/4 x 9 1/2 inches, very good unused condition. The printing is not by photographic means. Most decorative piece for use in packaging or advertising tea imported from the Far East to Europe by the company based in Tours-Saumur, France. The picture at left shows a scene reminiscent of a Japanese print of the mid 1800s, with decorative rather than accurate Japanese script; a Japanese lady taking tea. A perfect gift for the tea lover of today! Item #55745
