Old linen backed bicycle poster of 1904 on the control plates of velocipedes
Extremely rare linen-backed bicycle poster, typographic, all the details on the new tax legislation for the cycle from 1904: "Control plates of velocipedes". Collector's item for museum.
It’s an original vintage bicycle poster, NOT a reproduction.
Poster from and acquired at an auction in 2022 at Drouot with Vermot Associés
This poster has been archivally mounted on acid free paper with museum wheat paste and backed with linen canvas (Linen Backed). This protects the fragile poster. Early vintage posters viewed as temporary advertising were printed on inexpensive paper as their purpose was to be glued up on a wall or kiosk and most probably to have a different one replace it in a short time.
While expensive, linen backing is a conservation method used to mount, stabilize, preserve and protect vintage posters so they can be displayed or framed without compromising value.
