Shanghai glamour

A collection of softly colourful, hand painted vintage advertising posters, each capturing the glamour of 1930s Shanghai. As the Chinese market opened to the world, so they caught up with sales techniques and went into advertising poster production, creatively inspired by the Art Deco style of the era. Ladies with film star quality market everything from medicinal teas to cigarettes. Alabaster complexions persuade us to purchase cosmetics, elegantly they entice us to sample soap. All will beautify a wall.
