In tandem with a growing number of newspapers and periodicals, print advertising proliferated during China’s Republic Era. A bathing beauty is the star attraction of this print ad from around 1920. With Western features, a body-conscious pose, and a flapper-like indifference, the woman reflects how Western mores and aesthetic style accompanied global commerce. Still vibrantly colored, the ad demonstrates the sophisticated printing methods available to commercial artists of the time. Prized by collectors, such ads give a 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.”
