Le Galion

This ad from 1941 was created for perfume house Le Galion. The star at the centre of the image is surrounded by the names of some of Le Galion’s famous scents: Bourrasque, Sortilège, Brumes and Tubéreuse. The image of a galleon above it refers to the majestic seafaring vessels from which the company took its name. After becoming owner in 1935, the highly esteemed perfumer Paul Vacher created fragrances so beloved that by the end of the war he was considered to be one of the masters of perfumery.

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.
