Farnesiana de Caron

This 1948 ad for a fragrance by perfume house Caron combines the minimal with the ornate. It depicts a simple square bottle of Farnesiana on an baroque, golden stand. This juxtaposition creates a strikingly beautiful image for a well-loved fragrance. Caron is still in business today. The brand has a distinctively Parisian history, having been located on the city’s Rue de la Paix when it was founded in 1904. This wondrous poster will create a lavish ambience wherever it’s displayed.

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.
