About The Poster: There is something innocent and spectacular about advertising from the Art Deco period - it gets the message across so gently but yet so forcefully at the same time. I find this piece very evocative of the Gazette du Bon Ton and other fashion periodicals of the time in France - simple, elegant, but very, very Deco. Some combination of fashion and environment so that the viewer is always reminded that fashion and life does not take place in a vacuum ... An unusual combination of colors designed to catch the eye of a consumer as they were shopping, this was a point of sale piece which hung from the rafters of a store ... It is impressive and colorful and in A condition - some aging is noted at the borders but the image is clear and intact. Produced in the 1930s, it measures 10 x 6.5 inches and is an authentic, non-reproduction piece.
