Winter Wonderland: A nostalgic swoosh down the slopes, from Austria to Zermatt…

BannerWinter  Skiing posters, like many advertising posters, were originally produced to entice holiday-makers and winter thrill-seekers to resorts and alpine areas. The early- to mid-century skiing posters were often designed by notable artists of the time and are colourful, dynamic, glamorous, nostalgic and stylish, sometimes also fun and quirky. The ones that survived now make for a good investment, ideal for decorating chalets and “back home” as a stunning reminder of a memorable ski trip. Visit our original vintage skiing posters page for more reviews, further information and images.

Get ready for some retro swooshing down the slopes now with a few of our original vintage skiing and winter posters; click on the images below and visit our website at www.AntikBar.co.uk to view our whole collection:

Linen backing and restoring vintage posters using acid-free and reversible methods will preserve and protect these works of art, making them more durable and smoothing out minor paper folds and creases. Further restoration may be required for water staining, paper loss, mildew, colour fading etc. to bring a poster back to its original glory.

Poster Mountain’s exceptional restoration services will ensure your poster’s long-term monetary stability and aesthetic qualities. Based in California, USA, their international client base includes The Academy of Motion Pictures, Arts and Sciences (The Oscars) – the Margaret Herrick Library Graphic Arts Collection, MGM Studios, Universal Studios, Warner Bros. Studios, art galleries, dealers and private collectors.
