French General Ferdinand Foch has an amazing history. He is credited for being absolutely critical to the Allied success in WWI. He was a huge war historian and studied Napoleon and France's loss in 1870. He theorized ways to develop strategies based on it for the modern century he was living in. His ideas were very controversial to a lot of the old leadership and rivalries evolved. When WWI happened, this gave Foch a chance to shine after some complications from the rivalries and being transferred to Italy. He was put in charge of all Allied forces and his strategies were instrumental in winning the war. He is considered by most to be the most elite military strategist of his time. His purported declaration in one of his early battles is famous and has been used and modified many times after: "My centre is yielding. My right is retreating. Situation excellent. I am attacking."

This vintage advertising would look amazing hanging on your wall as home decor in any room!

Cigar labels show you what vintage advertising is all about with their embossed labels. This is a fine example of lithography at its finest. This was a lost art after the 1920s, unfortunately.

My pictures seriously don't do it justice. These had to be done on heavy paper stock which makes them stay vibrant and new looking for a long time.

This item has reached full antique status.

Most of these artists were very good but desperate for work during that era and got paid very little and received no recognition for their work. Unfortunately, the majority of these artists will remain unknown, but we can keep their art alive forever.
