That's a classic. You wouldn't find an "ad bench" like that here! It's quite beautiful! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Sharon Anck said...

That is a very impressive way to advertise.

José Mendonça said...

@PerthDP: Yes and the shop is still at the same adress as seen on the ad.

Been around awhile, I bet. I like it. Walking by I'd try it out for a spell too.

That is fantastic tile work and a brilliant marketing idea.

Proof that the meds are messing with my head... I meant Jose!

@Mersad: It must be another bench as I haven't photographed this one before.

Love those tiles - this is a good advertisement for the factory. :)

RedPat said...

Love the tiles as usual and I'm so happy that the factory is still around!

Joan Elizabeth said...

There must have been a lot of tile factories ... given the number of tiles I have seen in your blog.

An ad for Saint Anna is strange (being in Brittany at the moment I'd say that an ad for Santez Anna Mam Goz ar Vretoned is extremely strange! That's Breton for Saint Anna, grandmother of the Breton people). It's very pretty though!

I had no idea that bench ads had such a long history! How fascinating!
