Tomagno (1851-?) was one of the great poster artists at the turn of the century. This original Cachou Lajaunie poster, created in 1918, advertises a breath mint. The pharmacist, Leon Lajaunie produced an aromatic for perfuming the breath, whose strong flavor covered smoker's breath. The image features a young well-dressed woman, sporting a jaunty hat decorated with flowers, presenting a tin of Lajounie Cachous to six gentlemen. Each one represents a sample of the professions where the mints were needed: chauffeurs, racing cyclists, magistrates and tobacco vendors. The poster is linen backed, measures 39" x 52" and is in excellent condition.
