This is an original vintage advertisement print for Port wine that appeared in a 1935 French periodical. Purchased in Paris, the print features the “mystery man”, The Sandman, an iconic image associated with the drink of pleasure. At its inception in 1935, this caped silhouette was named “the Don’ and since then it has become one of the most famous characters of the alcoholic drink industry. It represents the quality and reputation of the Portuguese port wine and is recognized worldwide. This strong vibrant advertisement is a wonderful print that would work well in a bar setting, man cave, kitchen or dining area where family and friends enjoy good food, celebrate happy occasions or simply savor the taste of a great wine. The print is original to the 1930s and is NOT a reproduction. Illustrated and signed by George Massiot. It is in pristine clean condition. 13 x 9 ¼ inches in size. Comes custom matted in a neutral toned 16 x 20 inch mat that works perfectly in a standard size frame. Please allow time for custom matting.
