Direct from the estate of an advertising company executive in Columbus, Ohio, these are selections of his hand drawn original artwork for advertisements and signs all throughout the Midwest and beyond. All are hand drawn and hand colored on very thin artist tracing paper, and in some cases they have been mounted on cardboard. The paper itself is very delicate, and in most cases there are tears and age wear to the artist paper but which often does not extend to the drawing itself, and most are ready for a frame. The condition varies and is noted in parentheses following each description, but in all cases the quality of the artwork and the whimsical ways he deals with the business themes shows someone at the top of his profession. Most date to the middle of the 20th century and evoke the scenes and spirit of that time. This set of 3 includes a terrific Drive-in Banking ad for the First National Bank of East Liverpool, where "it's our pleasure to interest you" and they have "ample parking" (very good condition unmounted artist paper with minor edge tears not affecting the drawn area and measuring approximately 20.5" x 7.5"), Timberlane's Motor Inn "Coming Soon to Salem!" and "Now serving the finest in food and cocktails" (unmounted artist paper in fair condition with some edge tears, age discoloration, and some taped areas where the artist was working and changing- measuring approximately 18.25" x 7.75"), and Golden Star Milk "Reaching for the Best" (good condition, unmounted paper hand drawn and colored measuring approximately 21.0" x 9.0" with some minor spotting). One of the most interesting things about this trove of vintage advertising original artist drawings is the chance to see how the artist worked, drew, and changed his ideas and renderings as he developed the concept for the ad.     $32.00/ set of 3
