This Brothel Token is a cloche and my example is so badly battered, it's difficult to make out all the detail - perhaps the result of a far-from-satisfied customer ?! The legend on the reverse seems to have caused some confusion so, just in case you don't get a President who can speak French (:-) here it is in the colloquial - "From Noon till 2.30 in the morning"; that's a long day (14.5 hours) for any one ! The article for which the link is given is interesting, revealing that Brothels here in France were only outlawed as late as 1946 (not that you'd believe that if you visited the Pigalle) and all of these Tokens are rare. They were purchased at 2.50 Francs from the "management" (Madame) and handed to the "service provider" who then passed them back to Management in return for cash. It was a way of stopping the ladies from engaging in some private enterprise but, presumably, it would not have precluded tipping ?!
