A charming vintage poster from one of the greatest manufacturers of rubber-based products in the world illustrates that a clever fox causes a Pirelli tire to advantage when being chased ... 

About Pirelli: Pirelli was founded in 1872 by Giovanni Battista Pirelli. Pirelli initially worked in rubber and related processes as they related to sporting and technology - tires and other rubber-based products for bicycles, motor scooters, and cars.  The company was so successful that in the 1950s, Alberto Pirelli built a famous Milanese skyscraper in the same area as the first Pirelli factory.
In 1974, Pirelli invented the wide radial type, a format that is still used as the standard in sport and racing cars today.   In 2005, Pirelli sold its cable division to Goldman Sachs, which changed the new group's name to Prysmian.

This period advertisement was recently matted and is ready to frame.
