This is an original vintage poster from the famous German tobacco company Crüwell (Gebrüder Crüwell in German). The factory was founded in 1705 by Johann Georg Crüwell as one of the first tobacco houses in Europe and quickly became successful the German tobacco market.The production of tobacco ended in 1983 due to a increasing use of cigarettes in Germany. Today you can find symbolic souvenir shop and exhibition house in Bielefeld, Northwest Germany, where the company was founded.
On the poster is a pair of cigarette boxes. The box in the top has the coat of arms of Bielefeld with a crown attached which represent the times where Germany was divided into smaller kingdoms. The script of the poster "Diadem" is a head jewelry and "Rot" means red - referring to the cigarette type. The lower box bears the picture of the Crüwell-Haus originally built in 1530 and rebuilt after WWII. The name of the cigarette is "Edel" which can be translated to "noble" and the text saying "Feinschnitt" on the side means "finely cut".
This is overall a very nice poster which represents a rich history. The printing of the poster is extremely well done in a way that it is visible on the back - a prove of quality. The colors are really well-preserved and the red and yellow look will light up and room and contribute with a cozy atmosphere.
The poster is in mint condition - no tears, folds and the edges look as new - probably one of the best exemplars of this specific commercial available. This poster measures approximately 23 1/2 x 33 1/2 in (60 x 84 cm) and is ready for being framed. It will be shipped folded and protected in a tube.
