Caron Muguet Bonheur

Lilies of the valley bloom in this 1955 poster ad for Caron’s Muguet Bonheur. Traditionally handed over as gifts on the first of May, they denote spring time- apt for a perfume with a verdant, woodland scent. These lilies are the top notes in this fragrance along with neroli, bergamot and orange blossom. In legend lilies of the valley are the Madonna’s tears at Calvary. The springtime good luck which they herald will enchant and brighten any interior they grace.

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.
