• Kerry Lee (1903-1988)

    'Cambridge' Original Poster Map 1947

    45x58cm Original Vintage Lithographic poster Published by Pictorial Maps Limited, Kerry Lee's own company Well known as a creator of pictorial maps of British cities from the mid 20th century, he generally draws a self-portrait in the bottom corner by his signature - as here, where he is seen (mustachioed and bearded, and clad in a green tunic) with his ever-faithful dog Jim. Educated at Reading Schools of Arts and Science, the Slade and the Sorbonne in Paris, he subsequently assisted his step-father, an architect named Mr Harvey, as draftsman. Following the Depression Lee set up 'Associated Artists' at Blandford Studios off Baker Street, with a group of other commercial artists. During World War 2 he was based in Hertfordshire creating detailed cut-away drawings of German aircraft, and after the war - still at Blandford Studios - published a series of pictorial maps, both those for British Rail and also his own publications.
  • Womens' Voluntary Society - WVS Help preserve the Jam Ration - Empty Jars Wanted - Original Poster The Riverside Press Limited, Riverside Works, Twickenham 10x8" 1940s With rationing in force until July 1954 - nine years after the end of World War 2 - the annual glut of fruit always gave rise to a rush to preserve fruit. In a very twenty-first century way both the economy of recycling and the desire not to waste food come to the fore. Fruit preserving is of course extravagant in the use of sugar, so was not to be taken lightly, even during the war years the sugar ration was extended to allow for jam making. A sentiment familiar to Bake Off watchers! A rare survivor.

  • John Nash

    Shell Guide to Cambridgeshire Original poster c. 1960s 76x51cm Shell commissioned a series of posters to go with their County Guide books, and they commissioned paintings by the leading artists of the day. Nash needs no introduction as an artist. A painter of landscapes and still-lives and illustrator - particularly of botanic works - who worked extensively with wood engravings, he was a natural choice for Shell. His most famous work is probably 'Over the Top' which hangs in the Imperial War Museum, relating to a counter-attack by 1st Battalion Artists' Rifles at Welsh Ridge on 30 December 1917. Of the eighty men who went over the top, sixty-eight were killed or wounded within the first few minutes. Nash escaped and painted the picture three months later. The Tate holds his 1918 painting 'The Cornfield' which was his first non-war painting (he only started painting in oils in 1914). Condition: mounted in conservation mount and wrapped in plastic sleeve (mount hides short edge tears).

  • Anonymous Original Art Deco Design for Poster: Norwegian Cruises by Blue Star Luxury Line

    Gouache on paper c. 1930s 35x25cm It has not yet been possible to identify a poster for which this was the design. A well-painted design for a poster for cruises to Norway. A funnel pours out a stylised stream of smoke. The distance in the fjord is cleverly demarkated by the use of horizontal white lines. The interlocking spurs of the fjord are clearly visible, and a spectacular use of colour helps the Art Deco design. Isolated spotting and loss of paint, as visible in photograph. In a fine hand-finished black box frame, with AR anti-reflective glass. A rare survivor which shows very handsomely.
