Vintage Chinese Deco Medicine Pharmacy Advertisement Poster, c. 1920

About the Item

This advertising calendar poster dated from 1920 for the "Chinese and Western Medicine Pharmacy" melds the meticulous detail of traditional Chinese painting with the craft of color lithography. Compared to other Western influenced advertisements of the era featuring seductive women, posters like this one captivated consumers with the latest fashion trends. We see a woman with a Western hair cut wrapped in a luxurious fox-fur scarf embroidered with a peony. The sleeves of her modern coat are covered with Art Deco patterns, which also border the portrait. The top banner promotes the company's name and location and the calendar is in bottom banner. Minor water damage and creasing.

These advertisements, influenced by the Art Deco movement in the west, recall the economic boom of early 20th century Shanghai, an international center of business and trade. Layered with imagery of traditional Chinese life, the poster is nonetheless an advertisement for the modern cigarette industry, with several brands displayed in the top left corner, including Lan Ting, Hong Chun, and Jade Rabbit...
