This is a huge vintage absinthe poster (3' x 10'!!), I bought a while back. It is a stone lithograph, and I have been told it was printed in 1924. While I haven't been able to confirm the age, the size seems consistent with other posters from this company at the time. The one and only thing I dislike about this poster is that my walls are only 8', its too big to display.

    Paper seems very white for 1924 ....would have thought it would be more of an Ivory color from age?

    I agree. I'm going to try contacting the Peureux marketing dept, being a large company, they should have records of this poster; and be able to pinpoint the age and artist. I've done this previously with Bally (shoes), and they have every record of all advertisements made since at least the 20's.
