We picked up a wine poster when we lived in New York. The shop was throwing it out and the frame was a bit messy, but we still think it looks pretty nifty. Wondering if anyone has seen it before or knows much about it.

Approx 2' x 3'
Across the top is "Vignobles et Caves de la Bouvraie_ (Anjou)"
The image is a woman tilting her had back, eyes closed, slight smile holding up a martini class of sparkling wine.
The background is the image of a chateau framed in a dark blue circle. The rest of the background is flat black.
Across the bottom is "H. Grandin et Cie" "Vins Moussaux _ Anjou"
The very small print at the bottom right is "Gossart 35 Rue St Georges Paris Creation Janvier 1934 Reproduction Interdite"

The colors are simple- black, blue, yellow, peach and very soft. I see an artist's signature in left-center, but the script makes it difficult to validate- Ch Harry, Ch Hany, something lke that?

I'm fairly knowledgable w/ French, so I know what it says and know about the Anjou region, but am unfamiliar with the Grandin company or its products.
Any insight would be appreciated.
