About the poster: This wonderful Art Deco advertisement was produced for Baicoli biscuits. Fan-shaped ads were a popular marketing tool during the 1920s as point-of-sale gifts with purchase.

On Cointreau, Wikipedia writes: "Baicoli (English: golden oval) are an Italian biscuit, originating in Venice.

Baicoli gain their name because their shape resemble that of sea bass, , which in local dialect is called baicoli. These biscuits were created as a ships biscuit, for long sea voyages by Venetian ships.

Today, Baicoli are served with coffee and zabaglione, in which they could be dipped.

Fan is in excellent condition.
