In the 1920s, the British magazine Posters & Publicity was published by London The Studio as a commercial art annual which featured the best in modern advertisements, design, and posters. They contained numerous colour illustrations such as this advertisement for Lifebuoy soap - one of the most popular soaps in the United States from the early 1920s to the 1950s. A leader in medical health soaps, its instantly recognizable red and yellow packaging made is easy to spot it on store shelves -- and this orange ad is just as eye-catching and charming!
We really love vintage ads such as these - not only because they're beautiful and colourful, but because they remind us of the romance of old paper. Call us sentimental (cause you'd be right!), but we think pieces like this look great anywhere, from the bathroom or kitchen to your large scale gallery wall. They also make fab gifts!
This mini poster is double matted in grey and cornflower blue to 10.75 x 13.75 inches and ready to frame.
