This is a mid-century advertising mirror for Le Chat Noir( Black cat) cabaret in Paris, France, which Théophile Steinlen designed.


Steinlen was a French artist and printmaker who was born in Switzerland. He was known for his political activism and collaboration with anarchist and socialist press.


The creator, host, and owner of the cabaret was Louis Rodolphe Salis, credited with creating the modern cabaret. At Le Chat Noir, patrons could sit at tables with alcoholic drinks and enjoy various forms of entertainment.

Did you know that Le Chat Noir, meaning "The Black Cat" in French, was a popular entertainment venue in the artistic Montmartre area of Paris during the 19th century? The establishment, located at 84 Boulevard de Rochechouart, was founded by Rodolphe Salis on November 18, 1881, and ceased operations in 1897, following Salis' passing.

Many believe Le Chat Noir was the first modern cabaret, a type of nightclub where guests would sit at tables and enjoy alcoholic beverages while entertained by various performances on stage. A talented master of ceremonies would introduce the acts and even engage with famous patrons seated at the tables. Cabarets inspired by Le Chat Noir have since emerged in various cities worldwide, from St. Petersburg's Stray Dog Café to Barcelona's Els Quatre Gats and even London's Cave of the Golden Calf.


During its prime, Le Chat Noir was a lively nightclub that served as a hub for artists and music enthusiasts. From 1882 to 1895, the cabaret also published a weekly magazine under the same name, which included literary works, news from the cabaret and Montmartre, poetry, and political satire. This establishment was immortalised in an iconic Théophile Steinlen poster in 1896. One of his most famous works, Tournée du Chat Noir, showcases his classic Art Nouveau style with intricate details and features a black cat, which would later become a trademark of his work. The artwork, finished in 1896, advertises one of Le Chat Noir's tours, where they would showcase their shadow puppetry in various locations. A collectable mirror with this stunning design is a beautiful representation of the era and the art style.

Comes with a mid-century aged frame with a silver effect.
