Antique Graphics Wednesday – 1916 Advertisements

I brought home two 1916 magazines called, “The Etude”.  I felt so fortunate to get these because they were not for sale yet at the thrift store where I purchased them, but I struck up a conversation with the manager and she took me to the back of the shop and let me look through the items that hadn’t been taken to the floor yet!  She was such a sweet gal and we had a great conversation about decorating with repurposed & vintage goods.
These were magazines for singers and musicians and are filled with the most beautiful advertisements, illustrations, sheet music, and articles.
Feel free to right-click, save and print these images for your projects.  

I have always loved this advertisement for Victor Phonographs – isn’t that dog adorable?
For some background information about the Victor Victrola Phonograph visit this link.

This image is from the back cover of the magazine and is an advertisement for Pompeian Beauty Products.
It is stunningly beautiful!  This is perfect for a blog sidebar image.

This lovely framed ad was for Kranich & Bach Pianos.

Here’s the same ad, cleaned up and with the typography removed.  Add your own words to make a new creation.

These are just a small handful of the gorgeous images found in this magazine.

It takes some time to scan, crop and edit them, but I’ll complete more and post them next week. I hope you enjoyed these!

    Did you know that it has a note saying “Sincerely, Mary Pickford”? How cool is that!!!
    Even without that saying, this is beautiful.
