A stunning and extremely rare original Swiss ski poster promoting Davos Parsenn ski area. A wonderful and artistic rendering by Gessner shows a skier down the ski slopes and the funicular in the back.
Parsenn, which links Davos and Klosters, is the cradle of skiing in Switzerland. In 1895, four English tourists lost their way on the Weissfluhjoch and ultimately landed in Küblis, thereby discovering the 12 km-long Parsenn descent - an Alpine myth was born.
The funicular was built in 1931, and the line links the town of Davos with the Weissfluhjoch ridge and the Parsenn ski area.
In excellent condition, just a tiny 1 cm tear that could be repaired. Wold look stunning framed. Love this poster.
