Original 1902 Vintage Framed Poster & Calendar, Scottish Union & National Insurance Company
REF: RWH / LA370192
Original 1902 vintage calendar poster advertisement by Scottish Union & National Insurance Company. The colours are still incredibly vivid considering age. Set within a really beautiful, thick, solid, oak, original frame with a lovely patina. Framed and ready to hang. It is very heavy. The Scottish Union Insurance Company was established in 1833 and merged with the Scottish National Insurance Company in 1877. This form of advertising with a useful calendar was a practical and colourful way to reach a wider audience. It formed an annual marketing campaign for the company during the 19th century and early 20th century. They had multiple offices around the world including Edinburgh, King William Street London, The Strand in London, Leeds, and the Us. I have not seen another similar except held within museum collections. I believe it’s quite rare and a wonderful decorative piece.
