About The Poster: 

The Maitre de l'affiche posters were a collection sent to poster aficionados and subscribers just before the turn of the century (roughly 1896-1900). 

This is an original poster and not a reproduction. It is part of the collection of the Maitre de l'Affiche and is embossed with the seal of the Maitre.

Les Maitres de l'Affiche, Affiches Illustrees and Das Moderne Plakat" were produced for collectors at the turn of the century and had been sought after by collectors for over 100 years. Many of the posters in the series cannot be found today in any other format. They have not survived. Others are extremely rare and have sold for staggering amounts - like this piece by the poster team known as the Beggarstaff. The Beggarstaffs was the pseudonym used by the British artists William Nicholson and James Pryde for their collaborative partnership in the design of posters and other graphic work between 1894 and 1899.
Poster is in excellent condition, from a private collection and ready to frame.
