It would be hard to find a more classically Deco image than this one which was purchased recently in Europe. Advertising a radio manufacturer called Fornett who evidently had at least three models to offer (at "affordable prices and unequaled value), this poster was printed in Strasbourg in the 1940s. We have had this poster lined to protect its investment value and physical integrity. We think it is an impressive and interesting tribute to Deco artistry and would make a great addition to any collection. Radios were perhaps one of the earliest forms of entertainment which permitted masses of people to enjoy entertainment at once - the precursor to television and moving pictures. Of radio, the entry on Wikipedia states: "The early history of radio is the history of technology that produced radio instruments that use radio waves. Radio development began as "wireless telegraphy". Later radio history increasingly involves matters of programming and content. During its early development and long after wide use of the technology, disputes persisted as to who could claim sole credit for this obvious boon to mankind. Closely related, radio was developed along with two other key inventions, the telegraph and the telephone." Overall excellent (A) condition - Paper, linen backing. Poster measures 24 x 32 inches.
