About The Poster:

"This poster was created by the C. Burckardt printing firm and is part of a larger series of posters that were produced during the 1880s and 1890s. The company was based in the Alsatian town of Wissembourg, along with the French border with Germany, and was also known for its cutout puppets, puzzles for children, educational charts, and religious depictions. These posters were created during a time that the Alsace region belonged to Germany when the town was still called Weissenburg. All posters in this series have been printed via stone lithography, in multiple panels.
 

While the subject matter of these posters varies from common Alsatian characters to wild animals, to figures plucked from the Commedia dell'Arte, all have a spirit of playfulness that cannot be denied. They visually represent a time of relative peace along the French and German border, between the Franco-Prussian and First World Wars, in which these images would bring much joy to carefree adults and children alike."
