DescriptionMossant (1938). Very Fine- on Linen. French Grande (47" X 62.5") Leonetto Cappiello Artwork.
Mossant was a famous brand of hat manufactured in France and well known in the United States for most of the twentieth century. The company was founded by Charles Mossant in the nineteenth century, and by 1929 more than 2,000 hats a day were being produced. Half of them were directly shipped to the U.S. This is the original vintage Mossant French poster created by the famed artist Leonetto Cappiello in 1938. The poster shows moisture damage to the upper left border and upper right corner. The linen has been trimmed up to the edge of the poster.
Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
