A nautical scene with sailboats, children and birds flying against the sunlight is at the center of this wonderful die-cut advertising calendar art print. The gilded bordered scene sits among a beautiful frame with a golden sunset, another sailing boat, embossed violets along the edges and a basket weave design embossed with gilded edges. The Art Nouveau style salesman sample calendar was a perfect promotional calendar for a business to give to customers. A monthly advertising calendar would be attached to the bottom part of the print.
This Art Nouveau wallhanging in good/fair condition. The bottom right corner is torn off and there is some staining and soiling on the bottom part of the print underneath the basketweave (see photos). The corner could probably be trimmed. The advertising art print is marked "Printed in Germany" and has the order number "No. 07997 CLASS-B" printed in purple ink on the back. Two slits in the basket weave have not been opened. These would have been for the calendar to be inserted into.
The nautical scene print measures approximately 10 inches long and 4 3/4 inches at the widest point. It will be shipped sandwiched between stiff cardboard and sent First Class mail unless otherwise requested.
A lovely piece of vintage ephemera that would be a wonderful gift or wallhanging for any home decor.
