Ed. Pinaud - Moustache Profiles

Edouard Pinaud, A La Corbeille Fleurie, Paris, France

Publication: ca 1900, NP

A fabulous advertising piece for Ed. Pinaud and his Parfumerie in Paris. It is a folded stiff card showing the 40 possibilities of moustache, beard and sideburn possibilities and assures the consumer that it "imparts to the hair and moustache softness and brilliancy. No gentleman's dressing table complete without it." Mr. Ed Pinaud placed above competition at the Paris Exposition of 1900. On one side are the 40 beard, mustache and sideburn profiles. When opened it measures 22 1/2" x 28 1/2" This side is near mint with only the slightest of stain. The obverse side is advertising Pinaud's other products, those being Eau De Quinine Hair Tonic - The best Hair Restorer. A Positive Dandruff Cure; Ed Pinaud - Unsurpassed Extract Vegetal to use after shaving and Ed. Pinaud's Brillantine - Unequaled for imparting to the Hair and Moustache brilliancy and softness. Several stains to this side, but overall in very good condition. The advertising piece was published by Palmer and Oliver of New York.
