A very rare embossed tin sign advertising the French brand, Chocolat Menier.
The company was originally founded as a pharmaceutical manufacturer in 1816 when chocolate was used as a medicinal product. We think this sign dates from the late 19th century and would have been hung up in a shop.
As you can see from the photos, it is heavily patinated and looks all the better for it, with a few dings here and there, showing signs of its age.
It would look great in the kitchen or in a cafe, or just about anywhere you choose!
