About The Poster: A fabulous Art Deco poster advertising the town of Phalsbourg, in the province of Vosges - designed by J. de la Néziére in the mid-1930s.
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.
According to Wikipedia: "Phalsbourg is a town in the Moselle province in north-eastern France, with a population of about 5,000. It lies high on the west slopes of the Vosges, 25 miles (40 km) northwest of Strasbourg by rail. In 1911, it contained an Evangelical and a Roman Catholic church, a synagogue and a teachers' seminary. Its industries then included the manufacture of gloves, straw hats and liqueurs, and quarrying."
