Crumpled, torn and a bit loose at the seams, but....

I can't do better then to repeat the previous owners description of this- An original poster from the halcyon days of Christies Decorative arts sales in South Kensington. My mum and I used to buy/sell there and we acquired the poster from someone we knew. As far as I remember they were not available for sale. The large poster is 30x 20 inches  and details the sale on the 10th Sept 1990 , when Poole Pottery made great amounts at auction and the sale felt like a real day out for collectors. It would make a great addition to a collection but would need to be mounted behind glass, as sadly it has seen better days. There are fine crease marks all over, some stains, and small rips to some edges, but still a rare piece.
