About The Poster: Advertising tins and cartons were very popular during the Art Deco period in Europe and this wonderful example from France shows us just why. Done in the style d'apres' Leon Dupin, one of the best and most creative artists of the French Deco period, Scotter Apertif produced this advertising in tin and carton form (we have both). This particular piece measures 12.75 x 8.75 inches, is in very good condition (a small area of paper is missing on the top right of the tin and can be seen in the photos), and bears the tax stamp of the French Republic of 1933, 80 centimes. It was printed by the Wetterwald company in Bordeaux, this tin also indicates that it was used on the Chemins de Fer du Midi (see the far right side of the tin just below the 'r' in scotter )... Measuring 8.75 x 12.75 inches All in all, quite a find.
