F. Millot Recital

This charming ad with a musical theme was published in 1941. The illustrator Félix Agostini depicts a perfume bottle in spotlight above musical staves which notate a tune before spiralling off into the vastness of space. Originally an illustrator, Agostini was best known for the surrealist-inspired sconces, lamps and furniture he handcrafted in bronze. A glimpse of that style is on show here in this piece from an earlier episode in his career. As buoyant as it is opulent, this ad will brighten up the wall of any interior.

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.
