A stunning vintage poster, from the time when aeroplanes were propeller driven.
It was designed by Perceval who was well known for designing posters. A very nicely composed image, with the plane to the centre showing various goods being transported, and the pilots flying the plane. With the classic Air France type face and logo on a vivid blue background.
Framed in a solid oak wooden frame. Each oak frame is slightly different with natural grains running through the wood.
Dimensions of the poster: 102cm x 62cm (40” x 25”). Framed dimensions: 106.6cm x 68.5cm (42" x 27").
Original posters of this period are rare and hard to source and this is the only one we have in stock. So don't miss the chance to own this special piece.
The poster shows the details of the printer that printed it in the bottom right hand border.
Like most posters of this period it was printed to the highest of standards. Known as a lithographic poster, lithography was a highly skilled process, and very time consuming. It gradually fell out of favour for these reasons. The finished product was a beautifully clear image, which gives the poster a painterly feel.
Original posters are highly collectable, and also make beautiful art for your walls. They have steadily risen in value and collectability over the past 30 years, and are now seen as a hot and trendy investment. Vintage posters are sure to hold their value, or rise in value over the coming years.
