Our annual sale of Rare & Important Travel Posters on October 27 was a continuing validation of the market's strength, as well as the desire of collectors to acquire beautiful and historically important travel posters.
The sale set at least ten auction records and had an impressively high sell-through rate of 83%. The top lot was Paul George Lawler's iconic Fly to South Sea Isles / Via Pan American, circa 1938. The poster set an auction record for the artist at $20,000.
An exceptional interior scene of one of the earliest aircraft to ever offer lunch service, Imperial Airways / The "Silver Wing" De Luxe, by Charles C. Dickson, circa 1927, was featured as the cover lot for the auction. It sold for $11,875, an auction record for the artist and almost double its high estimate.
Additional auction records were set for artists A.R. Acott, Mark von Arenburg and Joseph Feher, among others.
The next sale of Vintage Posters will be on March 16, 2017.
Consignment Deadline: December 16, 2016.
