Chinese Cigarette Ad Poster of Three Sisters Brand from the 1950s
Regular priceSale price
Here we have a risqué Chinese cigarette advertising poster from the 1950s. I believe she is promoting cigarettes for the 3 Sisters cigarette brand (open to corrections). These sexy advertisements were prominent in Shanghai and other parts of China after the war. They got my attention...(ahem). The graphics are smokin'.
My main source of information is from a similar piece with the same logo sold at a recent auction. Here's the link:
The rare Chinese poster is framed in a very solid oak frame. It measures 36 1/2" wide and 27 1/2" tall. The exposed image measures about 29" wide and 19" tall. There is a separation line in the poster along her back and backside (see pics). Also there is some ink bleeding near her feet. The solid oak frame is experiencing some vintage wear, especially near the bottom right corner. The vintage cigarette ad has not been viewed outside of the frame. Please see all pics as they are part of the description.
I ship to the continental USA only. Free shipping on this piece.
Now I gotta catch a plane to Shanghai. Step on it!
