Vintage posters

We hold three dedicated Collectors’ sales each year which include Vintage posters.

They are collectable because of their highly artistic qualities and historical interest. They also have great visual power and impact when hung on a wall.

For many enthusiasts and collector’s, posters represent both visual stimulation and investment potential.

Designers such as A.M Cassandre, Ludwig Holwein, David Klein, Jean Dupas, Roger Broders, Emil Cardinaux, Edward McKnight Kauffer, Frank Henry Mason, Norman Wilkinson,  Edward Wesson, Dorothea Sharp and Terence Cuneo, to name but a few,  are highly sought after by  collectors today.

There are several factors which determine the value of a poster which include print method, originality, designer, theme, rarity and condition.

Original examples from the 1880’s through to the 1980’s have achieved the best possible prices at our auctions in recent years.

Poster themes of interest to our specialists include:

  • Skiing
  • Movie
  • Railway
  • London Underground
  • Domestic and World Travel destinations
  • Music
  • Airline and Cruise Liner Companies
  • War
  • Propoganda
  • Soviet Union

All of our poster auctions offer live online bidding which, together with our extensive worldwide database of collectors and dealers, ensure  that your items obtain the best possible price.

Please remember, selling by auction in the only way to achieve the true value of your possessions. We act as your agent at all times and are here to maximize your return, for which we take a fixed percentage commission.

Don’t be misled, misguided or even tricked into selling your items to unscrupulous and unregulated Auction houses or Dealers for cash deals. In our experience, they offer way under market value and often go on to sell the items for a vast profit.
