Vintage Chinese Advertisement Poster - Polytamin Tonic - 1930's Glamour
...augments metabolism, reinforces the functions of hormones, gives appetite, strengthens resistance against diseases, and enhances growing power and energy... (the power of Polytamin - from the label)
In the 1920's and 1930's Asian advertising was highly influenced by the glamorous graphic designs of the Western world including the American film industry and sophisticated fashion cities like Shanghai, Paris and New York. Sometime between those two decades, this ad for Polytamin, an iron boosting tonic, was made for a Japanese company who was importing Chinese medicine to Japan. Capturing all the beauty and elegance of the Chinese culture it was reprinted in poster form in the 1960's when travel to Asia was the ultimate destination in exoticism for jet-setters on the go.
