Vintage 1970s David Hockney & Ed Ruscha “mr. Chow” Matchbox Beverly Hills London For Sale

Vintage 1970s David Hockney & Ed Ruscha “mr. Chow” Matchbox Beverly Hills London

-You are offerding on a vintage matchbox from the famous Mr. Chow restaurant, either fromthe Beverly Hills or London location. It is from the mid-1970’s would be my guess, and features an image of Mr. Chow created by David Hockney in 1969, and on the reverse, an image of a Mr. Chow “food painting” by Ed Ruscha from 1973.

This matchbox was found in a collection which was purchased from the estate of a travelling automotive executive.

It has just the London and Beverly Hills phone numbers, so this matchbox would certainly be prior to the 1979 opening of the NYC location I would think…

-Consider that L.A.’s Mr. Chow was referenced in the Steely Dan song “Glamour Profession”…

It is in great shape overall, with just some small scuffs and some light wear along the edges and corners. The artwork looks great- a really cool example from the period, and from two outstanding Los Angelesart figures.

Please note:

-A fellow er has pointed out that there is an earlier version of this matchbox with a paper label. This particular version has the artwork printed directly onto the cardboard box stock. I believe that as such, these matcheswere likelymade sometimenot too long before the 1979 NYC opening (3rd Mr. Chow), as there is no mention on the matchbox of this 3rd location.

Thanks!
