An adorable German printed salesman's sample calendar art featuring two young girls reading a book with a tiny kitten looking on. The children are set in an embossed yellow, oval frame. A large, embossed pink rose dips behind the frame cascading down the print and a lovely butterfly hovers top right corner.
This wall art calendar was a salesman's sample presented to prospective businesses as a promotional advertising piece. The salesman would present various styles and sizes of artwork from which the client could choose. A monthly calendar was then printed and attached to the bottom of the artwork. The local shops would then give these advertising calendars to customers for the coming year.
Because salesmen would take these all over the country and they would be handled by customers, it is rare to find a German print like this in such exceptional condition. This may have been an unused blank or one that was not taken on the road.
This piece of vintage ephemera measures approximately 12 3/4 inches tall and 7 inches at the wide. It is in very good vintage condition with some very mild soiling as is to be expected of a piece this age, a few tiny flea bite chips along the edge and minimal bumping at the corners (see photos). The back of the calendar has no markings. The bottom of the vintage ephemera piece is marked "Printed in Germany" in the right corner and "18255" printed in the left.
This lovely vintage calendar art will be shipped sandwiched between heavy cardboard and mailed First Class shipping unless otherwise requested. Because of the delicacy of this item insurance is required and will be reflected in the shipping price.
This sweet calendar art would be lovely in any nursery decor or as a gift for mom.
