Saul Bolasni is the artist of this vintage original 1951 Kayser hosiery advertisement; aside from being a renowned artist of the mid century era, Mr. Bolasni was a famous costume designer and dancer who most notably performed in the 1945 Broadway musical production Up in Central Park. Saul Bolasni's portrait of Lotte Lenya as Pirate Jenny from The Threepenny Opera is on permanent display at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC. Along with Kayser Hosiery, Saul Bolasni provided advertising artwork for Columbia Records, Ponds, Hattie Carnegie, Vanguard Press, Lentheric, Moore-McCormack Lones, Stendahl Cosmetics, Lippincott Press, Rosemarie De Paris, and Galey & Lord; he also was a commercial artist for Town and Country, Mademoiselle, Ladies' Home Journal, and the New Yorker.

Making a stunning focal art piece for a vintage inspired couturier or nostalgically fashionable Broadway dancer, this elaborately enchanting illustrated Kayser Hoisery advertisement is a two page magazine spread that would look strikingly glamorous framed and displayed in a retro glam style ladies' fashion accessory boutique or a mid century atomic starburst accented fashionista's boudoir closet! As seen in the second image provided, there is another two page advertisement featured. This is a vintage 1951 Naturalizer Shoes ad and one of the pages is featured on the backside of one of the Kayser Hosiery pages, so if you were to frame and display these magazine spreads you would need to decide which to feature for this reason. Furthermore, in the following images provided the 1951 Kentucky Tavern whiskey liquor ad and RCA Victor TV ad can be seen as each full page advertisement is featured on the reverse side of the remaining two page magazine page prints; the Naturalizer Shoes and the Kayser Hosiery, Gloves, and Lingerie ads.

In excellent vintage condition for its age, this 1951 haute couture collection is nearly pristine. There is only some light edge wear mostly noticed along the binding edge where the print was once bound to the magazine; this includes the original staple holes, but these are hardly noticeable. Fortunately, most of the light edge wear, that does not include the binding edge since it will be visible when framed as a magazine spread, can easily be hidden behind the border of a picture frame or framing mat. The pages in these two page magazine spreads match up beautifully for displaying.

Measurements:
Each page measures approximately 10 1/2" x 14"
