King Francis I of France enjoys a glass of Quinquina Chambord while taking in the view of his palace, the Chateau Chambord. We are being shown in this appealing poster that the Quinquina Chambord label is - quite literally- fit for a king! The cheeky poem on the yellow scroll translates roughly to 'women may come and go, but you can always rely on the quality of Quinquina Chambord'.
Unfortunately, very little is known about the artist G. Lampure, other than he appeared to specialize more in oils on canvas than advertising posters. This classical training can be seen in the excellent handling on the king's draped garments and the expert depiction of Chateau Chambord.

What People Are Saying...
If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.
Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
