It is important to remember that you are buying an original vintage fine art poster an not a reproduction of any kind. We do not use terms like “mint” or “near mint” condition, as they are highly subjective. Each of our pieces is photographed in high quality so you can zoom in and view the poster in greater detail. In addition we use the following IVPDA (International Vintage Poster Dealers Association) approved condition rating system:
"A" Condition: the poster is in fine condition. The colours are fresh and there is no paper loss. If there is a slight tear, or folds, it is very unobtrusive.
"B" Condition: the poster is in good condition. The colours are acceptable. While slight paper loss maybe evident, it does not distract from the image. Restoration, if any, is not immediately apparent.
"C" Condition: the poster is in fair condition. Colours are faded, and there are signs of more extensive restoration. Existing folds are more visible, and possibly minor paper loss.
We further use '+' or '-' to more precisely describe the condition of a particular item (e.g.: B+). On top of this, we describe any “condition particularities” for individual pieces on its product page.
We apply the above condition rating system to all our posters and prints. If you have additional questions regarding our piece’s condition, we invite you to submit any inquiries.

San Remo, alternatively spelled Sanremo, is located just 30 miles from the French border. It is a historic resort town on the Italian Riviera that sports one of the most famous casinos in the world. This beach-studded strip of Italy´s coastline is called the Riviera dei Fiori, or Riviera of Flowers, because of the booming flower growing industry of which San Remo is the capital. In the 1800s San Remo became one of the most fashionable resort areas for the rich and famous; Tchaikovsky wrote "Eugene Onegin" there in the 1870s. The early-20th century saw San Remo peak in popularity, attracting tourists from all over Europe and opening a huge casino to rival Monte Carlo in 1905. The city is still a glitzy and fashionable destination on the Italian Riviera and caters to an upscale crowd.
This beautiful poster was printed in 1933 advertising a the region as a tourist destination with a beautiful girl picking flowers in the sun. The Art Deco style, and beautiful colours, makes this a truly wonderful work of art.
