Influenced by Western advertising, commercial posters featuring beautiful women in modern settings gained popularity in China in the 1920s and 1930s. Commercial companies presented posters, like this one, to their clients for Chinese New Year. This poster depicts a woman luxuriously dressed in a western style fur-trimmed coat holding a purse that also indicates Art Deco influences. This brand of Chinese advertisement draws on the classic American advertisements of the early cinema age, featuring starlets in the budding Shanghai movie industry. The poster is backed by a silvery mirror, now beautifully spoiled from time.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
