Clearly the poster wants to tell an oriental and exotic story about where the Lakkawella tea comes from. So when you enjoyed a cup of nice warm tea in less warm Denmark you would have the feeling of being in India ...I think the image suppose to be from India.

The poster was made as an advertisement for the former FDB (the FDB logo is in the poster). Today FDB is known as Coop amba which is acronym for the Association for Danish Consumer Cooperatives) who owns quite a few supermarkets in Denmark.

The artist who made this poster is Poul Høyrup (1909-1971). Høyrup made book illustrations and cover art drawings and was employed by FDB to make different advertisement posters. It was in his work with FDB he developed a soft and stylized modern line which is seen on this poster.

This poster could be great for as café decor, in the kitchen or a place for relaxation. This poster express a very cosy atmosphere with its slightly naive lines and a oriental touch.

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
