    Description

    Priceless Oil Advertising Poster (1920s). French Grande (46" X 62.25"). Miscellaneous.
    This magnificent stylized image of a Native American warrior garbed in a traditional headdress and armed with an axe, holding a can of Priceless Oil, that he is pouring over the earth. The image by renowned WWI propaganda artist Henri de Laurencin, was commissioned for Mobil Oil for the French market. A restored poster with a clean overall appearance. It may have general signs of use, such as light edge wear, minor creases, surface scuffs, and light toning. Although the poster was backed onto linen, no restoration efforts have been made. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Very Fine-.
