Description:

This is one of the wonderful Norwegian ski posters from the 1930's. Designed by Dagfin Th. Hanssen who we know very little about. You don't find much about him, and this is the only poster I have seen with his signature.

The poster depicts a skier climbing a steep uphill in a classical Norwegian ski outfit of the time. Norwegian knitted stockings and plus-four trousers and wooden skis.

The poster has minor tears, creases and abrasions at edges. The poster looks great! A must have for a serious Norwegian ski poster enthusiast.
