This is a beautiful Illustrated Agricultural Ad cover featuring: International Stock Food Company, Minneapolis Minn - 3 Feeds for One Cent and a horse owned by the company named Arion.

Original antique color litho poster produced by the International Stock Food Company of Minneapolis Trotting Stallion ARION. This poster measures about 21.75" x 15.75" and is titled ARION 2:07 3/4 and captic. The frame itself is 24 x 18 and I just framed it UV protected glass and mohoggany finished frame..

The poster was part of a book that a dealer would furnish free with a 25-lb. purchase of pail of "Internalional Stock Food." The engravings were made at International Stock Food's own lithograph department. Excellent color and graphics. The lithos were folded so it's normal to see horizontal and vertical folds. Wish I had one of the books with all of the animals.

The owner of International Stock Food was M. W. Savage, a colorful and very successful businessman who promoted his products by buying and exhibiting famous race horses such as Arion, Minor Heir, and his favorite, the legendary Dan Patch. According to legend, Savage loved Dan Patch so much that when the horse died, its owner, broken-hearted, died the next day.

The poster has a small inset text box explaining Arion's achievements as a Champion Trotting Stallion.

Shipping is free but must be shipped to a commercial work address for signature.
