This unauthorized celebrity product endorsement advertising poster featuring Constant Coquelin toasting Sarah Bernhardt with a glass of absinthe led to a law suit against the printing company which Bernhardt won. However, the verdict came too late as the poster had already been printed in La Plume in 1897. This remarkable piece is being auction at Swann on February 25th with a $1,500 - $2,000 estimate.

Great story behind this one! Mot your usual Absinthe poster though.
