1920s The Art of Tennis Movie Poster
Starting Bid - $200.00, Sold For - $575.00
The exceptional art-deco graphics of this rare circa 1920 movie poster make it a candidate for display in the living room as well as the hobby room. This poster advertises a series of tennis instructional films entitled The Art of Tennis which featured female members of the British Davis Cup Team and their French challengers. One of the stars was French great Susanne Lengelen and her partner Elizabeth Ryan. The movie was produced by the Parkstone Film Company of Lytham, England. The poster measures 20 x 30 inches and is linen-backed with some extremely minor barely detectable restoration in the lower left corner, which is mentioned strictly for the sake of accuracy, and is otherwise in Near Mint condition. Bright, crisp, and with perfect bold colors, this a very unusual and rare 1920s tennis poster with a striking design and an extraordinary display value. The poster is accompanied by a four-page foldout promotional press book (10 x 6 inches) which pictures several of the tennis players featured in the series. Reserve $200. Estimate $400/$600. SOLD FOR $575.00
