Stunning art deco with great colors encouraging people to visit Copenhagen - the Capital of Denmark.
The poster displays a peaceful scene with the Marble Bridge (Marmorbroen) as the center topped by a gentleman, a fishing man and two ladies in the latest fashion. The bridge was built in 1745 and makes up the old entrance to the former royal castle of Christiansborg. On the poster is (at that time) the newly built tower of the castle which was constructed as the new Danish parliament. The parliament was finished in 1927 and the tower was redesigned with additional crowns in 1934 (which is not visible on the poster).
With many details to help me dating the poster, I believe the poster is from the late 1920s. That would also fit well with the woman's hats on the bridge. However, the spelling of Copenhagen in Danish is "København" but the poster uses the old form "Kjøbenhavn". The municipality stopped using the old spelling form in 1906 but some private companies still used the old spelling for years to come. A fun little detail.
The poster says: Copenhagen - Marble Bridge - Travel to Denmark.
I hardly never uses the word "rare" to describe a poster but this one should definitely be very hard to find. Yes, the poster has many imperfections but they should be quite easy to fix as the only paper missing is black and the tears are very smooth.
All in all a great vintage travel poster that will make a great addition to any wall and room it might be placed in.
Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
