Vintage Swiss Masked Ball Poster, circa 1920s



An original 1920s Swiss lithograph poster for the Grand Ball Travesti at the Carlton Hotel in Geneva in black, white and pink, printed by Fretz Freres, Zurich. The event was a dinner dance held on Monday, February 11, circa 1920 which we think was a performance of Avant Garde marionettes (Poupees Modernes = Modern Dolls). Unusual subject and whimsical graphic design. Excellent condition, ready for framing. Easy to ship, rolled up in a tube.
