An enormous antique BOS Whisky billboard poster.
A wonderful & very rare survivor, manufactured in three separate sheets due to its size & in some fantastic colours with some great detail. Printed by Walter Scott Ltd of Newcastle which ran from 1882 to 1931 & housed in a custom made ebonized pine frame.
T Pease & Son was a Darlington based wine merchant whose most highly regarded product was BOS or Blended Original Scotch Whisky. In 1908 it was supplied to the House of Lords which provided a good publicity opportunity for the company & was mentioned in most of their advertising posts from this date.
Late 19th / Early 20th century
Wear commensurate with age, very good for ephemera of this age, minor loss bottom left, upper lettering to right hand side slightly off centre due to the printing process (these were made to be disposable & in three parts). Contemporary custom made frame glazed in acrylic to keep the weight down & supplied with a new set of brass mounting.
