Original, vintage, Shell Lubricating Oil. Official for Winter poster designed by Edward McKnight Kauffer, 1936, with reference to Hillman Humber, Rolls-Royce and Standard S.S. cars. Probably the greatest poster designer working in interwar Britain, Kauffer produced several outstanding designs for Shell oil in the 1930s. The posters were displayed on the side of Shell road lorries as part of a highly regarded publicity campaign. This copy belonged to the leading post war graphic designer Abram Games.
