This large poster for Geisweiler is a great example of to-the-point product advertising. In the center of the image, a bottle of the wine and a clear glass are stylistically positioned set against a beige background. In the lower portion of the image, the artist Lajos Marton, uses typography and contrasting colors to catch the attention of the viewer. The text reads, "The very soul of Burgundy." Burgundy is the region in France where this wine was produced. The simplicity serves to imply that this superior product speaks for itself.
Geisweiler is a well known French sparkling wine, renowned for its elegance and freshness. Founded in 1804 by Francois Geisweiler, the winery is one of the oldest in Burgundy. Geisweiler is still available for consumption today at an affordable price; each wine is presented in a sophisticated and embossed bottle.
Lajos Marton (1891-1952) was a Hungarian poster artist. Marton studied at the Applied Arts School where he designed several Youth Organization Magazines. Throughout his career, Marton illustrated books, stamps and several posters.

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.
