Original 1920's Native American Sioux Indian Chromolithograph Poster 19" X 27" For SaleOutstanding and very rare, original, ca1920's Native American Indian Chromolithograph Poster by the Erie Litho Company featuring a wonderful portrait of an Indian Chief in feathered headdress. This fantastic, color lithograph Poster measures approx. 19” by 27” and appears to be a sample of a stock Poster that would have been printed by Erie with text advertising a Wild West Show or Circus.
The Poster features a bust portrait of a proud Native American Indian Chief (appears to be Sioux) wearing a full feathered headdress, fringed buckskin jacket and eagle feather breastplate. The bust is set against a green circular background which is surrounded by a brilliant yellow field.
The Poster caries no printed text although there is a blank area at the top which was obviously reserved for printed advertising of some kind. The Poster is untitled and unsigned by the artist but does carry a double, lithographer's slug at the lower right hand corner that reads "Printed in the U.S.A. By E.L. Co. Newport, Ky No. 5521" and "Printed in the U.S.A. By Erie Litho & Ptg. Co. Erie, Pa. No. 5521"
While the Poster is undated we know that the lithographer - The Erie Litho Co. began printing at Newport Kentucky sometime in the mid 1920's and our best estimate given the markings and the materials of this Poster date it to the 1920's or early 1930's.
This wonderful, Native American Indian Chromolithograph Poster is in very good condition - the colors are bright, vibrant, rich and warm. There are no stains, discoloration, soiling, foxing, age toning or fading to the image area. There is no physical damage of any kind - no tears, holes, edge chipping or wear of any kind. The sheet retains its complete, original margins on all sides and there is some uniform age toning to those margin areas only. The Poster has been mounted on a linen backing using archival material materials and techniques. Overall this outstanding, original ca1920'sw Native American Indian Art Poster is very well presented and displays beautifully.
