This Belgian film poster for 'A Perilous Journey', aka 'Cargo De Femmes' (Belgian French title) or 'Vrouwen Cargo' (Belgian Flemmish title) dates to the film's release in 1953.

I've never watched 'A Perilous Journey' nor do I intend to, but the design of this poster is just superb! Fantastically 'of the period' illustration combined with vibrant colours - a real work of art.

This poster was printed in Belgium and the stamp is present (as you'd hope to find on all authentic Belgian posters of the period). It's survived the decades in decent order, there's a little yellowing of the paper and some staining (probably glue) along the top edge along with a small nick / loss in the lower right but generally it's vibrant and punchy and displays beautifully.

It has been professionally framed and is ready to hang. Including the frame it measures 51.5cm high x 37.5cm wide.

UK Mainland P&P would cost £10.

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."
