Behold this magnificent original vintage poster from the 1930s, a true masterpiece of Art Deco style, proudly presented by Aktiebolaget Nymans verkstäder, Uppsala. Its purpose? To extol the virtues of their esteemed bicycle model, the Hermes.
The poster showcases a captivating illustration: a dapper gentleman, clad in the fashion of the era in rich brown attire, gracefully gliding atop the Hermes bicycle. This stylish scene unfolds against a striking blue backdrop, with the compelling slogan emblazoned: Hermes - 'Cykeln med delar av rostfritt stål' (The bicycle with parts of stainless steel).
The choice of the brand name 'Hermes' harkens back to Greek mythology, where Hermes served as the divine messenger of the gods and the patron deity of athletes.
This poster is preserved in splendid condition, bearing only a small horizontal fold as a testament to its vintage journey through time. Its vivid colors continue to shine brightly, offering a glimpse into the allure of an era gone by.
