Additional Information: Original Balsam, Aperitif au Quinaquina vintage stone lithograph printed in 1923. The great artist Jean d’Ylen created this poster after assuming the head of Vercasson after Leonetto Cappiello. This original poster is. Archivally linen backed and ready to frame. In excellent condition. Untrimmed full size 47” x 63”. This image of a brightly dressed skier, with one leg high in the air is holding a bottle of this Balsam aperitif and in the other hand a glass. The image, which has a dark background highlighted with royal blue, makes this skier pop off the poster. This style is also extremely similar to that of the ‘World Master of Modern Advertising’, Leonetto Cappiello. D’Ylen’s mastery of the art of flamboyant product personification is clearly derived from Cappiello’s animated and exotic imagery. Many years after he started his search for the perfect formula, François-Xavier de Beukelaer completed his final recipe for Elixir d’Anvers in the early hours of 19th March 1863.. Antwerp's distinctive golden yellow liqueur is still distilled according to the original recipe. Now around 160 years, making it the oldest liqueur distillery in Belgium. François-Xavier de Beukelaer founded his liqueur distillery at Paardenmarkt in Antwerp but swiftly had to move to larger premises at 22 Bredastraat, with offices at 77 Kipdorp, and branches at 63 Paardenmarkt, 65 Anneesensstraat, and Kapelstraat in Hoboken. Quinaquina is an aromatized wine, a variety of aperitif. Traditionally quinaquina contains cinchona bark, which provides quinine. Quinine was used in treating malaria.
