This is an ultra rare original 1953 monochrome lithograph by an unknown artist (signed here as Sinnott) which was intended to promote the Ambassador Hotel in Chicago. Advertising such places as The Pump Room restaurant (famous haunt of celebrities such as Frank Sinatra and Humphrey Bogart), the Beau Nash Club, Sarah Siddon's Walk (for private parties only), and the Buttery night club, it almost resembles the cover for a Doctor Seuss children's book.

This is a limited edition original lithograph, #1498 out of 2,000. Only the portfolio was numbered, not the individual lithograph's within it. This is not a lithograph "after" the artist. This lithograph was created by the original artist on the lithograph plate, and is, therefore, a true original lithograph. The artists used either litho crayon, ink, or tusche when creating their art works on the plates.
Period Paper has obtained an extraordinary, ultra-rare collection of original lithographs by some of the premier artists of the 1950's. These lithographs were produced for an annual art event in the 1950's for local businesses and major corporations largely based in New York. Historically important for corporate archivists, these are extremely rare to locate and are virtually unseen individually. The original lithographs were produced in only one limited edition, and included just 2,000. These lithographs are perhaps the most unique, rare, important advertising collectibles that exist for businesses and corporations.
