Byrrh (pronounced beer) was founded in France in the 19th century and is a wine-based aperitif, that is apparently 'the kind of old-school cocktail ingredient that is really coming back into vogue'!

Byrrh were always very big on advertising with the company's branding appearing in a number of mid-20th century (normally French) films and even a French stamp in the 1930s. As this bright, bold tin sign shows they definitely went for impact over subtlety!

This particular example is dated to 1957 and was produced in Marseille. It remains in lovely, bright condition. These litho printed tin signs are inherently more vulnerable than their enamel counterparts and this example has picked up some surface scratches, a few areas of loss and the upper left corner has some fairly heavy creasing that has been flattened back out, but generally the sign displays well.

The sign measures 90cm wide x 40cm high.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
