Vintage French Advertising Sign

This is one of the most amusing French "affiches" that we have found to date. It is an advertisement for shoe polish and it dates from the 1930's-40's. It was purchased in Paris.

The hard paper board sign was printed by B. Sirven (Toulouse/Paris). The background is a brilliant cherry red which sets off the fabulous ink black horse. The shoeshine man and his customer come up off their seats when the jar of black polish is opened. A small horse trainer in the background runs to tame the horse. The expressions on the faces of the men and the overall scene are amusing.

The sign measures: 14" x 8 3/8". There is a string hook on the back for hanging. It is in excellent condition with little wear.
