    Description

    Silver Pine Healing Oil (Litho Dept. Int'l. S.F.Co., 1895) Advertising Posters (2) (21" X 28"). White horse bleeding on barbed wire. Man running with bottle of oil and rag. A dramatic and frightening image. While barb-wire was an important technical advance for farming, it had its dangers and those are graphically illustrated in this lithograph. Left 4" of the piece has been trimmed but main graphics are fully intact and are in excellent condition. Good/Very Good condition. This poster is sold with a beautiful poster displaying an image of a trotting stallion named Buttonwood. Marion Savage owned the International Stock Food Company of Minneapolis, and was a genius at promotion. He bought the great race horse, Dan Patch, about the time this poster was produced. Savage used the horse for endorsements of International Stock Food Company products and the use of Dan Patch's name on other products, exhibition races, and barnstorming made Savage millions. It's obvious Savage's love of horses must have permeated the entire company. His lithography department has created a powerful image of what most likely was a stable mate of Dan Patch. This poster has had the bottom 5.5" trimmed off. Good condition.
