Vintage French "Lejay-Lagoute" Pitcher

Vintage French "Lejay-Lagoute" Pitcher


The year was 1841 and in the city of Dijon, in the heart of Burgundy, Auguste Denis Lagoute created the very first Crème de Cassis - that rich, sweet, lusciously dark red liqueur made from ripe blackcurrants.  His son-in-law, Henri Lejay soon joined him in his venture and the house of Lejay-Lagoute was born. Their iconic, original Crème de Cassis was soon launched to an appreciative France and later to the entire world.

Produced by Lejay-Lagoute in the 1930s, this vintage promotional pitcher was given to cafés and bistros to promote their Sisca brand of Crème de Cassis.  The pitcher is in the form of a stylized jay bird, which was also used in advertisements for Sisca during that era.

Strictly one-of-a-kind and subject to prior sale. In good vintage condition bearing gentle signs of use and age, the worst of which being a small chip at the inside mouth of the pitcher as shown in the alternate images. 8 1/2" x 5 3/4" at widest point.
