This is a stunning original vintage poster issued by Fred. Olsen Line to promote their Oslo-Antwerp route.
A colorful rendering by Knut Yran depicting a Fred. Olsen Line ship at sea with a Seagull in the foreground of a colorful yellow sky during sunset.
Text on the poster: FRED OLSEN Line - M.S. BRETAGNE - M.S. BRABANT -ANVERS - OSLO
The route was serviced by M.S. Brabent and M.S. Bretagne.
M.S. Brabent (1926-1954)
Brabent (3) was built by Akers Mek. Verksted, Oslo, in 1926 for the Fred Olsen Line route Oslo-Antwerp. She returned to this service after the war until she was sold in 1954.
M.S. Bretagne (1937-1958)
Bretagne (3) was built by Akers Mek. Verksted, Oslo, in 1937 for the Fred Olsen Line route Oslo-Antwerp. Following the loss of both 1938 sisters Black Prince (1) and Black Watch (1) during the war, she replaced them on the Oslo-Newcastle from 1945. In 1958 Bretagne (3) was sold to Hellenic Mediterranean Lines.
Mounted on linen. A very hard poster to find. The second time we have it in stock.
