BannerNov14

This auction will include a variety of posters from around the world: travel, advertising, cinema, sport, war and propaganda. Most of the posters will be listed with low starting bids (from £10) so it will be a great opportunity to treat yourself and to buy some Christmas gifts! 

Please visit www.liveauctioneers.com/catalog/62183_original-vintage-posters/page1 to view our catalogue and register to bid (please note that more items will be added up to the auction date). We offer worldwide shipping using either UPS or Royal Mail.

PC0168_1_m  Deco Mag review: “AntikBar’s online auction takes place on 15 November and with starting bids at just a tenner, it’s a great opportunity to buy some wonderful art that, being vintage, is super eco too. Many posters are from the first half of the 20th century and genres include travel and film. Original posters offer a window on history and they can be an affordable way to build up an unique art collection.

When one just isn’t enough…

…go for a series! Sometimes a few framed original vintage posters work better than one large statement piece poster, for example, if the wall space isn’t high enough or you’re looking to brighten up an otherwise dark corridor with splashes of colour.

Let’s start with a few posters from this wonderfully retro series from the 1960s featuring some quirky slogans and fun images:

PA0081_1_m  PA0080_1_m

PA0100_1_m  PA0078_1_m

PA0082_1_m  PA0090_1_m

PA0088_1_m  PA0098_1_m

Come rain or snow, this original vintage 1958 London Transport series will certainly create an amusing focal point:

PA0663_1_m  PA0664_1_m

PA0662_1_m  PA0661_1_m

…and from Venice to Paris, this original 1981 Orient Express series will appeal to Art Deco lovers and travel romantics:

PT0414_1_m  PT0415_1_m

PT0417_1_m  PT0418_1_m

PT0419_1_m  PT0416_1_m

Propaganda posters were also often published as a series, such as these original vintage 1952 safety posters produced by the US Government for their pilots during the Cold War era:

PP0033_1_m

PP0032_1_m

PP0029_1_m

PP0003_1_m

…and we have a few small and mid sized posters from this World War Two series, printed by the US Government in 1942 to help their troops recognise their allies:

PW0085_1_m

PW0085_2_m

PW0085_3_m

For some carefree pin-up style fun, this vintage 1950s advertising series by Dickens for Goodyear soles aims to draw your attention to these ladies’ pretty feet:

PA0183_1_m  PA0501_1_m

PA0179_1_m

PA0181_1_m

Meanwhile, this dynamic series of original 1930s Castrol posters promotes their sponsored speed records and distance achievements on land and in the air:

PS0272_1_m  PS0275_1_m

PS0199_1_m  PS0274_1_m

For more sporting inspiration with an artistic touch, this series of original 1972 posters commissioned for the Munich Olympics aimed to “represent the intertwining of sports and art worldwide”:

PS0107_1_m  PS0084_1_m

PS0041_1_m  PS0055_1_m

PS0148_1_m  PS0075_1_m

Posters are suitable for any room of the home or office and this series of original 1930s Bovril posters that resemble the public service announcements of the time might provide some fun for the kitchen:

PA0161_1_m  PA0360_1_m

PA0356_1_m  PA0353_1_m

This series of child health posters was published in 1952 to promote “good health habits in school and at home” and would look fantastic in a child’s bedroom, playroom, nursery or school:

PP0282_1_m  PP0283_1_m

PP0287_1_m  PP0288_1_m

We have plenty to choose from – including more from some of the series featured above and some previously featured 1969 travel advertising posters for SNCF by Salvador Dali and a collection of 1986-1992 London Underground art posters – so why not browse our website and our blog for more ideas, such as decorating a cinema room with original vintage James Bond or Marilyn Monroe posters.

Perfect for winter season thrill-seekers, skiers and sports fans: original vintage Winter Olympic Games posters from Cortina d’Ampezzo 1956, Innsbruck 1964, Grenoble 1968 and Innsbruck 1976.

Did you know…? The Soviet Union participated for the first time in the 1956 Winter Olympic Games in Cortina, Italy, making quite an impact by winning the most medals (7 gold, 3 silver, 6 bronze).

PS0013_1_m  PS0231_1_m

Did you know…? The bid for 1976 Winter Olympic Games was originally won by Denver but, due to financial issues and environmental concerns, they declined and it was offered to Whistler. Due to government changes, Whistler also declined and the bid was offered to Innsbruck, host of the 1964 Winter Olympic Games twelve years earlier.

…and for a bit of fun… Ski Crazy, 1955 – original vintage poster for an American film, Ski Crazy! “Fun and thrills you’ll never experience again! Filmed with the world’s only skiing camera – you are actually on skis visually!” An American ski comedy by Gordon Maclean starring former Olympic and international ski greats: Darrell Robison (US Olympic Team), Sally Neidlinger (US Olympic Team) and Pierre Jalbert (Canadian Olympic Team).
