1930s Shanghai Cigarette Ad Lithograph


This is not a reproduction. It is an original Shanghai cigarette advertisement lithograph made in the 1930s. It was purchased at an auction of a collector. Reproductions are easily found. This is not. It advertises American Victory cigarettes and features a beautiful Asian women smoking, which was a new thing in China. The 20s found Shanghai becoming westernized and having a women's movement where women started smoking and wearing glamorous clothes as they did in Hollywood. This poster is 30 x 20" and is made on thick paper with metal poster clips on the top and bottom. Unfortunately, this one has a tear on the top right about 4" long, a small tear towards the bottom right and a couple of slight creases. Framing it could hide the tear. The price is adjusted for that. The back is barely yellowed. free shipping in the US

Frequently Asked Questions

I will happily refund for anything damaged during shipping. However, I must receive pictures of the damage, the box and the wrapping. I will refund you as soon as I receive this in order to file a claim with USPS or Shipsurance.

How much is a custom mermaid?

It depends on the size and the work involved. Custom mermaids start at $50.

I saw an item like this on EBay for less. Can you match the price?


Can you hold an item until I get paid?

No. I have done this before, taken the item out of inventory and then the person never bought. This causes me to have to pay to re-list the item and miss out on other potential sales. Please do not ask me to do this.

Do you ship internationally?

Yes, I do!
