This beautiful advertisement poster from The East Asiatic Company is portraying one of the most legendary ships from the fleet. The ship is called Jutlandia and is probably sailing docking somewhere in Asia on the poster. Jutlandia was built as a state-of-the-art ship in 1934 in Denmark and sailed en route between Copenhagen and Bangkok. During the Nazi invasion of Denmark in 1940 she narrowly escaped being bombed by both axis and allied forces though she was a not a military target.

The East Asiatic Company Ltd. traces its origins back to 1884 when the founder of the Company, Captain H.N. Andersen, started a trading and shipping business between Thailand and Denmark. The Company was formally registered in Denmark in 1897 and from this date on it has pursued a worldwide business within trading, shipping and industry. 

This unlined poster would look great in any living room, and is in excellent condition!
