Vintage 1911 Ithaca Gun Co. Poster-Wild Passenger Pigeon  Non-Guns > Artwork
Description: Offering a very rare poster from the Ithaca Gun Co. featuring the "Wild Passenger Pigeon." This poster was copyrighted in 1911 and is an original. John Delph, "Firearms & Tackle-A Collectors Guide" lists two passenger pigeon posters but not this one. Its the only one I have seen in my 30 some years of collecting. The artist is Ithaca born Louis Agassiz Fuertes who also illustrated many of the Ithaca Gun Co. catalogues. The poster is 15 inches by 31 inches. The condition is very good for a 1911 item. Someone had added tape on the edges were there were minor tears. The main image is fine. I think the photos show the condition quite well. Top and bottom metal bands are there although the bottom band has separated all but an inch or two from the poster. This is a very scarce poster from a very early time and a wonderful addition to the advertising or Ithaca Gun collector. Please e-mail any questions. I will ship it rolled in a tube.
