A Wonderful Advertising Piece
Wasn't sure what was going to show up when I bought this item but I felt I could chance it for $10USD.
Imagine my surprise!!
This is a framed hard stock poster of the 1924 Saturday Evening Post ad that features only the solid gold and platinum Bulovas - 16 ladies and four mens, ( two of the men's are pocket watches) from 1924, the era before names. The frame is wood, across the top says "Bulova Watches" . This item is not something someone made up using Saturday Evening Post pages, this is truly Bulova Advertising Art. There is no date in the upper corner like the magazine pages, at the bottom is printed "As appearing in the Saturday Evening Post". The size is 22.5" X 15.5 " (71x49cm).
Once we figure out how to get images into the ad data base we'll finally be able to see these 1924 watches in crystal clear definition and hopefully be able to nail down a few ID's. If I have to, I can photograph each watch and submit them individually. I'm open to suggestions. It seems too large for a standard scanner, although I could remove it from the frame easily if I had to.
It's already hanging in my office. What a find!!
