A mid 20th century faience bar figure, made in France by Henriot Quimper to advertise Martell Cognac. This 'toff-like' character, with head shaped like a brandy glass, was used to advertise Martell between approximately the 1920s and 1970s. Unusually, he is complete with his perspex monocle and glass, and his cigarette is undamaged. The base bears the Henriot Quimper backstamp.

Condition : There are three shallow chips to the bottom edge of the base.
