Its a mammoth auction, still didnt get into the post war section so will go back for a third sitting later.

The middle section has some scarce rarities and designs to make you drool !

First up we have an early Francis Bernard and a late Cassandre. The Arts Menagers poster is pre war and in a larger format than his others, There are many posters for the Foire de Paris that are mediocre, who knew there was one by the Master himself ?

$30,000 estimate on this Lupot, a rare design with eyes to give you the shivers, possibly not for anyone with a young family!

An Abram Games that I haven’t seen before, again a bit on the scary side but also a great image.

 

We always associate Mcknight Kauffer’s American period with American Airways but these two rarities show some other rather great stuff.

The final one has got to be one of his cutest designs and links in well with the current ‘Greatest Showman’ trend. I am still recovering from the singalong experience ……
