Title: I want you for the Navy

Artist: Howard Chandler Christy

Size: 27"x41"

Comments: Classic Christy Navy poster, one of the great recruiting posters of WWI. Beautiful girl in Pea Coat gives the classic "come hither" look to prospective recruits, it was probably hard to resist. Many collectors appreciate a poster that shows some gentle aging and use as being more evocative. This is a very nice specimen in that category of collecting.

Price: Sold

Condition: B, linen mounted, good color, some toning to paper overall, mostly seen in white, and some wrinkling in lower section before mounting.
