Antique "Legrand Frères" Loupe Carafe

Antique "Legrand Frères" Loupe Carafe

$195.00

From the markets of France we bring to you this rare, original Antique Loupe Carafe produced as a promotional piece for Legrand Frères - a wine and spirits wholesaler and brasserie once located in Gouy, France.

Popular at the turn-of-the-century, these carafes were commonly found sitting on bistro tables as a form of advertisement. The dome that is molded into the base of the carafe is designed to create a magnifying glass effect. This is known as the Loop, or Loupe in French. Text was written on the Loop, and when water filled the carafe the text would be magnified - sure to catch the patron's eye.

Perfect for the modern Francophile with a special love of café culture, this glass carafe features the advertisement for the Legrand Frères wine wholesalers written in beautiful red script on one side, and the advertisement for their brasserie written in blue on the other.

A handsome and rare addition to the home bar, it will capture all the magic of the Belle Epoque in France. 


Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good antique condition with signs of age and wear including clouding on the interior of the glass and minor fading of the text. Measures 9"H x 4 1/2"W
