Product Description

A cool original piece of BP art work…

Here we have a super rare piece of automobilia! Dating to the mid part of the 20th century, circa 1950s, this is an original piece of ‘pre-print’ artwork for an advertising campaign by BP. This pre-poster art work dates to around 1954, and it was originally part of a Shell & BP archive that was sold in Sotherby’s, London in 2003

The art work and paintings are offered in their original condition, framed over cardboard and covered in a plastic shrink wrap to protect the artwork. One will note the hand written information on the reverse regarding the Lot number at the auction, and we are chuffed to say that this piece has been authenticated as part of the sale…

It’s a beautiful piece and we assume it is a ‘one off’. A truly collectable piece and something that would look cool placed in a frame and graced on a wall…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and abrasions to the shrink wrap but insides are untouched and in ‘as found’ condition. The entire piece is structurally good, strong in its cardboard frame with no ‘bends’. The art work on it’s own is charming and vibrant, with a great subject matter. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
