During and after World War I, the United States government issued a series of propaganda posters to fund the war effort. The Americans All! poster, designed by American illustrator Howard Chandler Christy, encouraged civilians to purchase war bonds that would later be paid back. On the right side of this poster is a list of supporters with names such as Cejka, Pappandrikopolous, Andrassi, and Gonzales, implying that Americans of every ethnic background should purchase the bonds. A linen-backed print of this 1919 poster will be offered in Turner Auctions + Appraisals’ upcoming Fine Mélange Auction. A similar French poster is also presented, showing a peasant family with the words “Emprunt de la Paix” (“Loan of Peace”).
This sale will feature a selection of porcelain, ceramics, and decorative art. Leading these lots is a blue and white Wedgwood vase. Detailed mythological scenes wrap around the vase, which is glazed in a darker shade of the company’s signature “Wedgwood Blue.” Examples of porcelain from Meissen are also presented alongside Royal Doulton and Chinese enamel pieces. Rounding out the sale are antique written works, including a French book titled A Complete History of Drugs. Visit Bidsquare to explore the complete listings and to place a bid.
