2 Vintage Charles E. Frosst & Co. Dingbat posters by Dudley Ward 1933

 
 

 If your older than 40  grew up in Canada you are familiar with the Dingbats.Created by  Charles E. Frosst & Co  of Montreal their calendars and poster advertisements where a mainstay in dental and doctor offices and waiting rooms.  William Dudley Burnett Ward (AKA: Dudley Ward ,1879 -1935)was an illustrator, cartoonist and poster artist was the man behind the Dingbats. These 2 beauty's are by Ward in 1933 We don't know the age of the  posters but as far as we can tell they are probably from the 40's or 50's.Framed and come in at 19 by 15.5 inches!

    First up is "ATragedy In Dingbat Land" from 1933.The birds have lost an egg and the ever helpful dingbats are there to help.Has a bit of water damage at the bottom but other than that it is in pretty good condition
 





Next is "A Fishy Episode In Dingbat Land",also from 1933.The dingbats have landed the big one and are in a heap of trouble. Has a bit of water damage at the bottom but other than that it is in pretty good condition
    


  Highly collectable,  great  pieces of Canadian advertisement and just kool art.Dingbat art and advertising has become rare and very hard to find and it's only going to get hard to find. They will look damn good in any home or office!!
