Grande Chartreuse Queen of Liquors

This classy poster from 1953 advertises Chartreuse liquor. In the background are depicted the Carthusian monks who make the beverage in the Chartreuse mountains. The drink has an illustrious history, the first recipe being given to the monks by a Marshal of France in 1605. The “Reine des Liqueurs” or ‘Queen of Liquors’ is still made by monks today. At any one time, only two of them know its coveted secret recipe. This charming advertisement brims with that legendary history.

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.
