Simonds Saws & Knives, Gold Medals and Highest Awards Everywhere. Atlanta 1895. Art Nouveau poster.

Providence R. I: Livermore & Knight Co, 1895. An elegant color lithograph poster featuring a large Art Nouveau illustration of a woman representing Victory, dressed in flowing robes, her hands holding palm branches outstretched to encircle the subtitle "Atlanta 1895'. A Simonds saw blade is cleverly used as a red setting sun against which Atlanta is shown as a black silhouette.

The predominant colors of red, yellow and black and the lines of Victory's robes emphasize the sinuous lines and curves of this striking Art Nouveau poster.

Below the illustration, text records the company's medals awarded in Philadelphia 1876, Atlanta 1881, New Orleans 1885, Boston 1887, San Francisco 1889, and Chicago 1893.

12 x 15 1/2". Laid down on linen. Very good condition. Item #25824
