"Ireland Welcomes You" - this poster, designed by Curran for the CIE is a wonderfully vibrant piece of mid-century advertising. Córas Iompair Éireann (CIÉ) is Ireland's national public transport provider, this poster shows their new 'A Class' diesel train below a sunburst and a shamrock. The over-all design is bold and simple, but there's still a fantastic level of detail in the illustration of the train. This is an uncommon poster - a couple of examples can be found in museums but I've not encountered any others for sale.

The poster was printed in the Republic of Ireland by Dollard, Dublin. There's light creasing across the whole piece and a small 'green-ish' mark towards the upper right corner but generally it's survived the decades in very good order, it displays beautifully and the colours remain strong.

The poster has been professionally framed and is ready to hang. Including the frame it measures 107cm high x 69cm wide - a real statement piece.

I’m Louis Walpole. Over a decade of working for and alongside some of the best antique dealers in the country at London’s renowned Portobello Road have helped me to form a detailed understanding of, and appreciation for, a diverse array of antiques. In 2016, after ‘dabbling’ in the trade since childhood I decided to follow my heart and (ignoring a myriad of people advising against it) leave my salaried job to trade full time. Since then I have travelled around England and Western Europe collecting the pieces that particularly interest me. These pieces loosely follow the themes of; automotive, advertising, scientific and industrial. I have a select number of items on display in Atlam on Portobello Road. The shop is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 4pm and on Saturdays from 8am to 5pm.

If you would like to view any of my pieces in London, please get in touch to confirm that they’re at the shop or to arrange for me to take them there for you. It may also be possible for me to bring items to your home/bar/garage/pub etc so that they can be fully appreciated in-situ, again please just get in touch and we’ll see what can be organised."
