London auction house Dreweatts & Bloomsbury is kicking off its 2017 interiors auctions programme on January 10th and 11th with an important collection of property from the late Clifford and Rosemary Ellis, including London Underground posters from a series commissioned in 1933.
The pair also designed posters for the Empire Marketing Board, a government Department established in 1926 with the aim of encouraging people to buy Empire products. The poster campaigns were an integral part of the advertising program and Clifford and Rosemary produced a number of designs during the 1930s. They also designed posters for Shell and the General Post Office.
The lots range in estimate from £100 to £2,000, and here’s a selection to tempt you.
