This advertising poster from the 1930s for a Japanese company operating in China melds the meticulous detail of traditional Chinese painting with the craft of color lithography that was popularized during the economic boom of early 20th century Shanghai. With visible design influences from the rising Art Deco movement, the poster depicts a fashionable woman of the Republican Era reclining on a traditional high-backed armchair. Today, this type of promotional poster is prized by collectors for its artistry and unique glimpse of the past.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
