Highly collectible 1947 Textron Lingerie ad with charming artwork signed by recognized artist C.J. Sternberg in the earliest years of her career as an artist (26 years old!). Textron was considered 'high end' lingerie in those years, this ad for their 'Sweet As Magnolias' plisse' Hostess Coats for Spring. Two beautiful gals float in a field of clouds and magnolia flowers, one on a leaf and flower swing, just like delightful fairies! Prints of Charlotte Joan Sternberg's later artwork sell for hundreds of dollars, and as her style changed over the years to a more Grandma Moses-Charles Wysocki American Heartland aesthetic, this is an opportunity to own a signed Illustration from her early years. This stunning full-page color ad is in Excellent condition, measuring 10 1/2" x 14". The borders of the paper have age-darkened over the years and there are two small soil marks along the bottom adline of the text, not an 'issue'. No cropping or trimming; image is complete. Shipped flat in a rigid sleeve and mailer for a safe journey.
