    Description

    Marilyn Monroe & Other (Pin-Ups Boston, Mass., 1953). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Pin-Up Door Panel Set of 4 (21.75"" X 62"").
    1953 was quite a year for Norma Jeane Baker, better known to throngs of adoring fans as Marilyn Monroe. It was not only the year of Niagara, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, and How to Marry a Millionaire, but also the year Popular Science magazine ran an ad in its August edition for a set of 4 fantastic, life-size pin-ups including the rising new star, Marilyn Monroe. For only two dollars, a man with a "den, bar, or playroom" could own all four of these images of bikini clad women featured in a set. Included with Monroe were models Pat Hall, Joanne Arnold, and Madeline Castle. The posters had some edge wear, and small edge tears prior to restoration.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
