Art Deco French Bar - Half a Stereo Autochrome - c. 1930

Art Deco French Bar - Half a Stereo Autochrome - c. 1930

This could be a movie set for a 1930s romantic comedy. A bartender in a white jacket stands ready to mix a cocktail. The bar is filled with interesting details. A sign on the bar reads "pour votre cocktail" (for your cocktail) and possible "CCW". It shows a cocktail shaker and glass. I have not been able to identify any brand of French alcohol from the period that fits the initials. Next to the sign is a punch board game with a graphic of a horse race. Over the bar is a mounted clock, framed cartoon of a man lifting a glass, and two sets of small mounted flags. I can identify French, American, and Italian. There are others that are can not be identified.

My assumption is that this is a French bar that caters to tourists.

About the Autochrome:
The Autochrome Lumiere was introduced in 1907 and was the primary process used to make color photographs until the introduction of color film in the 1930s. A glass plate was coated with a random mosaic of grains of potato starch died red, green, and violet. Lampblack filled the spaces between the grains. A panchromatic silver halide emulsion is added. After exposing in the camera the plate is developed then reversed as a positive. The starch grains act first as filters for the colors striking the plate and then as a viewing filters in the finished image. For example light from a green leaf will pass through the green particle and expose the emulsion under it but would not pass through the red or violet particles. On viewing by transmitted light the green color would show wherever green light hit the plate.

Unfortunately, I don't know too much about this shaker and cordial glass. I just know it's old and it's been in my collection ever since I can remember. I can no longer recall where I got it, which is a total shame! It's so delicate and beautifully etched. If you know more about it, please feel free to post comments... I love comments! Thanks. It has a lovely ring to it when tapped.
