Badoit Water

This lovely advertisement from 1954 was created for Badoit, a brand of carbonated mineral water. A glass and bottle emerge from a circle no doubt indicating the bubbly character of the drink, and bubbles are shown surrounding the base of the bottle and coming out of its top. Plucked from the pages of a genuine French periodical, this ad for ‘la meilleure eau’—’the best water’—is impressive for the opulence and hope it communicates, appropriate to the years of the post-war boom in the 1950s.

At VAA we deploy modern technology to preserve these antique illustrations. The uniquely hard-wearing frames we use are designed in Switzerland; their durability results from the process of anodising. Anodising is a surface treatment which protects and decorates aluminium using an anodic oxidation process. As a result of this, these frames are especially resistant to corrosion and heat, protecting this vintage art from wear and tear.
We frame each illustration ourselves in our workshop in Lausanne, Switzerland. The float glass we use is crystal clear with a very flat surface and carefully polished edges. The frames are 32.7 × 42.7cm (12.87″ x 16.81″). The result? We present you with a period illustration- a genuine antique- enclosed by a frame of the highest quality. In this way, we like to think we’re bringing modern technology and antique artistry together.
