Ebay browsing in the 1950’s
Occasionally, but much more rarely these days, I would spend a half hour perusing Ebay, rooting through it’s 1950’s and 60’s ‘online treasures’ and sometimes finding a poster, book cover or piece of ceramic that catches my eye. Here’s a few I thought you might enjoy too.
Old adverts for children’s sweets, I know the names but the packaging had changed when I last saw them in a sweet shop.
Product advertising posters.
These lovely couple of prints, the top one had a rush of bids at the last minute and went for over £60, lovely work.
A few book and card illustrations from different parts and climates.
More typical 1950’s work.
Some paintings, wallpaper and textile designs.
Possibly a couple of modern designs (below) inspired by the Festival of Britain.
It’s great what you can discover that’s been living in someone’s cupboard all these years : ) Do you have any interesting 1950’s mementos ?
