About The Poster: A fabulous Art Deco poster advertising the casino of Vittel, in the province of Vosges - designed by Pierre Commarmond in the mid-1930.

The SNCF (Société Nationale des Chemins de fer français; "French National Railway Corporation"), is France's national state-owned railway company. Begun in 1938, it used posters from its inception to advertise the multitude of destinations which were served by its rail-lines. We feel that this poster, created shortly after the company itself was created is a wonderful testament to Art Deco design: strong colors and visuals which POP, clean graphic design and great typography. 

Classic! 

This poster is unlined and in overall very good condition. Pinholes in all four corners and a few minor tears in the margins (see photos below), which will all disappear when this piece is framed. 

Pierre Commarmond created many posters for the SNCF - we are fortunate to have received a few from a private collection and will be listing them shortly.

A little Vosges trivia: Casinos still dot the province of Vosges, and according to Trip Advisor, the Vittel Casino rates 3.8 out of 5.
