Not quite antique but I’ve added some vintage Guinness adverts to my Retro Adverts site.

Not quite an antique advert but still a great image.  Ovaltine were prolific advertisers and I must have about 40 to 50 different examples of original adverts, mostly over 100 years old.  I hope you like this one.

I really like this one, yet another that nearly made it into my ‘Keep’ pile.  But unfortunatly I’m also a seller, and this one is offered at a surprisingly low price of £7.85.  As usual, I’ll let the image do the talking :-)

These adverts interest me, a snapshot of high class fashion in the late 1890′s.  For such early advertisements they display a surprising appreciation for the power of illustration i.e. pictures sell.

Every now and then I want to keep an advert for my own private collection, and this is one such example.  I’ll let the image do the talking.

The older Birds Custard Ads really were works of art.  Check this out …

What were the advertising gurus at Beechams thinking of when you came up with this ad.  I suppose its quite ‘eye’ catching :)

Today is an experiment in digitally enhancing an antique Mellin’s Food advert dating from 1904.  First the original, and then the enhanced version below.

I admit I prefer the digitally enhanced version and these will soon be available from my antique advert shop soon, ready for instant download.
