Description

An original 1960s metal and metallic French St. Raphael Aperitief advertising sign in pale yellow, red and white. There are some small rust spots commensurate with age which adds to its authenticity. 

he history of ST RAPHAËL dates back to 1830. French Doctor Juppet was working to develop a quinine-based aperitif. After working endlessly late into the night, his sight began to fall......He then remembered the Biblical epitaph where the archangel Raphaël cured Tobias of his blindness. Anxious to regain his sight, he pursued his efforts and placed his new elixir under the holy invocation of the archangel. He thereby recovered his sight and managed to finish the recipe of ST RAPHAËL.
