DescriptionPETER'S UNION PNEUMATIK. Circa 1913. 361/2>x271/2> inches, 923/4>x70 cm. Kornsand & Co., Frankfurt. Condition A- / B+: minor abrasions and restoration in margins and image; light staining at edges into image. This poster for tires is a visual pun on the word "life saver," in German, literally meaning "Rescue Rings." The sailor who is bringing help to a vehicle that has two flat tires is seen from such an unusual perspective, which suggests the long distance that someone with inferior tires will have to walk to get new ones if their tires burst in the middle of a long journey. Hohlwein / Stuttgart 106.
