Beautiful and very charming vintage poster by Nina Brisley, produced for Child Education Magazine, Winter 1938.  Very rare and hard to find poster by this very popular and collectable artist.  The poster was intended for use in a classroom and was folded as a supplement in a magazine, hence fold marks.  This nostalgic image shows a scene from "There Was an Old Woman Who Lived In A Shoe", nursery rhyme and has children everywhere happily playing.  It retains its colour and charm.  There are a couple of small closed tears along the folds but these would hardly be visible once the poster was framed and have been repaired from behind and it is in overall very good condition for age.  There are some residual tape marks on the border edges but these could easily be cropped or masked when framing. It measures approx 99cm x 65 cm.  Delightful and very collectable.
