From sending staff on expeditions to the Himalayas, to adverts employing beautiful women, bears and dogs; Kléber-Colombes have always had a strong focus on the promotion of their tyres. This incredibly striking, brightly coloured poster is no exception.
"At all times... On all roads..." reads the upper caption, the poster features a beautifully stylised, retro "industrial vehicle" and "passenger vehicle" set against the companies iconic orange background with blue detailing.
The poster is likely to date shortly after 1945 as this is when Goodrich-Colombes was rebranded Kléber-Colombes after the factory was moved to Avenue Kleber in Paris. Their promotional material from 1952 onwards uses a variant of their logo that's set between two slightly merged diamond shapes and as this poster doesn't employ that variant it's likely to date between 1945-52.
It's simple, red painted frame compliments the colours well and the poster is backed and glazed, ready to hang.
There are slight crease marks near the upper caption (see photo), but these aren't easily noticed.
Including the frame, the piece measures 62cm wide, 92cm tall and is around 1.5cm deep.

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."
