"Moet and Chandon for Me", sequel to the famous "Champagne Charlie", also written by Leybourne . This was an early celebrity endorsement: he was paid by Moet to compose the songs and would appear on stage waving a bottle of vintage Moet & Chandon. A rival, Alfred Vance, had the same arrangement with Cliquot [See item 17925]. Alfred Concanen (1835-1886) was one of the leading lithographers of the Victorian period, best remembered for his illustrated sheet music covers.
