1925 and 1932, the makers of Chesterfields commissioned Charles
Edward Chambers (1883-1941) to create a series of advertising posters.
Chambers was born in Iowa and studied and taught at the Art Institute
of Chicago. He was also a student at the Art Students League in New York.
He was a prolific illustrator (Harper's, Cosmopolitan, Ladies' Home Journal,
McCalls) and a specialist in oil paintings that were used as a basis for
his posters. We are pleased to offer a collection of his small posters,
probably designed for use in trolley cars in Chicago and other major U.S.
cities. These posters, 29-1/4" x 14-1/8" in size, are in excellent condition
and are conservation-mounted on linen. They are extremely rare and very
special. Price quotes for individual posters are available on
