How about a Night in Paradise with Merle Oberon? Latest lots added to LastBid include almost 60 dramatic, colourful posters from the worlds of cinema and advertising, such as Quality Street with Katharine Hepburn (1930s), while the 1950s sees The Seven Year Itch with Marilyn Monroe, and The War is Over with Yves Montand dates from 1967. But the selection of posters unsold at auction stretches back to the 19th Century. Take the mesmerising image of family life in 1896, shown in the advert for Maypole soap. See for yourself here.
Other unsold auction lots added to LastBid this week include examples of stylish 20th Century design… such as a Louis Vuitton briefcase, Carlo Scarpa furniture, floor lamps by Mazzega, Reggiani, Gae Aulenti and others, plus Cesare Casati armchairs, a Gio Ponti desk and 10 truly stunning Venini ‘patchwork’ ceiling lamps. But as there are more than 100 varied lots, you’ll just have to immerse yourself in the world of design and see what catches your imagination. Click here.
Meanwhile, we’re excited to announce that we’ll soon be adding a selection of classic cars and automobilia to the LastBid site, so keep an eye out for those – and there’s still time to snatch yourself a Slim Aarons or an Erwin Blumenfeld print from our photography selection. But hurry, because they won’t be there for much longer.
