New listing of automobile memorabila! More from the consignment 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. This set of 5 features automobile and dealer service ads commencing with the whimsical "Ideal Chevrolet- Tops...any way you look at it!" with the little girl standing on her head (thin artist paper mounted taped to a heavier paper measuring approximately 21.0" x 8.5" and in fair condition with some degree of color fading from age), Central Service of 253 Broadway where you get "Great names in automobiles in East Liverpool Plymouth and DeSoto" (unmounted artist paper drawing in good condition with handwritten artist notes and measurements and sized at 12.0" x 7.0"), Smith Pontiac Sales & Service where you can "drive a bargain used car" (good condition with handwritten pencil artist notations on the drawing and around the perimeter, measuring approximately 14.25" x 6.75"), Litten's "Tops in service by George"(fun ad with the top spinning and what appears to be an unfinished oval addition in pencil on the right side, dated at the bottom 3-2-64 and in good condition measuring approximately 18.5" x 9.5"), and an excellent drawing on cardboard for Ideal Chevrolet Company of Wellsville, Ohio (good condition with one seam showing through in the cardboard, measuring approximately 20.25" x 7.0"). 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.  $42.00/ set of 5
