    Description

    Travel at Night (Compagnie des Wagons-Lits, 1930). Fine- on Linen. Italian Travel Poster (24" X 39.25") A. M. Cassandre Artwork.
    The forerunner of luxury European rail travel in the interwar period, Compagnie Internationale des Wagons-Lits (literally translated as International Sleeping-Car Company) built their business on overnight cars that would keep wealthy patrons safe and comfortable. It is particularly remembered as the operator of the famed Orient Express, the Blue Train, the Golden Arrow, and the North Express. Printed in lovely stone lithography, this Heritage first has been professionally restored to address edge wear, creases, small tears, and surface wear. There were small chips in the borders and paper loss in the upper left corner and border extending into the background. The poster has a company snipe in the bottom border that was issued to correct a typo in the original printing.
