    Description

    Singapore and Malaya Travel Posters (Raffles Hotels, 1960s). Travel Posters (2) (18" X 26"). Miscellaneous.
    This lot includes both beautiful and fun travel posters from Raffles Hotels, advertising travel in the Southeast Asian countries of Malaysia and Singapore. The "See Malaya" poster artwork was originally designed by Hugh Le Fleming in 1934 for the Federated Malay States Railways and was later reproduced as an art print by Raffles Hotel from the original in their collection. The Singapore poster queries "Where else should one partake of the Singapore Sling but at Raffles Hotel," alluding to the drink's creation shortly before 1915 by a bartender at the Long Bar of the Raffles Hotel in Singapore. Unrestored posters with bright color and clean overall appearances. They may have general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, creases, small stains, or very minor surface wear. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Rolled, Very Fine-.
