Cacao Van Houten original vintage French chocolate chromo-lithograph poster

c. 1890's

About the Item

Original CACAO VAN HOUTEN, LE Meilleur Chocolat a consommer liquide. Hot chocolate turn of the century antique vintage poster, unsigned. Printed by W. Hagelberg Akt in Berlin, Germany. The image features two girls passing a cup of Cacao Van Houten hot chocolate through a broken fence. This chocolate company created a variety of designs over the years, but this is one of the much more rare images from the company. From their website: "Among the chocolate brands available today, few can claim a legacy that goes back over 180 years. Van Houten has been manufacturing cocoa powder since 1828, when its founder, Coenraad Van Houten, pioneered a process to manufacture cocoa in Amsterdam, Holland. The result was a tastier and more soluble cocoa powder which spurred the growth of the hot chocolate drink industry. The poster has some restored fold marks and restored 1/2" white borders around the outside of the image. Presents very well. Very rare original Cacao / chocolate original poster.

  • Harper's July, The German Struggle for Liberty original art nouveau poster
    By Edward Penfield
    Located in Spokane, WA
    Original Harper's July vintage poster; The German Struggle for Liberty. Original turn of the century lithograph by Edward Penfield. Size: 14 1/8" x 21 18" Penfield created this poster to publicize Bigelow’s lengthy history of the Germanic people, serialized in the Monthly as “the first popular interpretation ever given to the rehabilitation of Germany through the uprising of the German people against the Napoleanic invasion.” July’s number began the series, which was published by Harper and Brothers as a two-volume set in 1896. Harper's June 1895 HARPER’S The German Struggle for Liberty JULY [Poster for Harper’s New Monthly Magazine, Jul 1895]. German soldier at the guardhouse. Four-color lithograph: grey, blue, yellow, and red. New York: Harper & Brothers, published Jun 1895. The magazine Harper's, issue of July, confronts the problems of The German Struggle for Liberty. Shown a German soldier in a helmet and armed with a rifle stands tall, and yet an uneasiness appears on his face. At a closer look, one will notice that not only does the soldier grasp his rifle in support, but in despair. This Harper's July is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed. An restored fold mark across the middle of the image keeps this image from being rated higher (for an original 1895 poster).
