This advertising poster from the 1930s for a Japanese company operating in China melds the meticulous detail of traditional Chinese painting with the craft of color lithography that was popularized during the economic boom of early 20th century Shanghai. With visible design influences from the rising Art Deco movement, the poster depicts a fashionable woman of the Republican Era reclining on a traditional high-backed armchair. Today, this type of promotional poster is prized by collectors for its artistry and unique glimpse of the past.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
