This salesman's sample calendar artwork depicts a woman adorned with purple lilacs on her gown, lovingly looking out from a floral Art Nouveau background. A gilded gazebo stands on a hill in the background while the woman's bodice is framed with a gilded Art Nouveau design of pink and white flowers, pink roses, and gold foliage.
The entire scene is framed in an embossed gold frame with a black inside border. The coloring of this piece is exceptional. Used as an advertising promotional piece at the turn of the century, this vintage calendar art is a salesman sample and does not have a calendar attached so it's perfect for framing and accenting any room.
The printed is marked, "Printed in Germany 65665" on the front's bottom corners. This piece measures approximately 15 1/2 inches by 9 1/2 inches and is in excellent vintage condition. This piece was obviously stored away somewhere because the colors are vibrant and there is minimal wear. There is some very mild soiling and minor scuff marks. A few tiny spots of wear along the edges in the form of a chip and bumped corners can be seen in the photographs.
This vintage ephemera will be shipped sandwiched in between heavy cardboard and mail First Class shipping unless otherwise requested.
A truly amazing piece of art that would be lovely framed or presented as a gift.
