Blue Star Line – Arandora Star

|Published by:||Blue Star Line|

A valuable original from 1934 in really nice condition. There is some minor damage to the sides, and some folds on the poster, which will not be a problem when the poster comes in a frame.
Ship posters are some of the most valuable vintage posters, and Blue Star Line are some of the most exciting posters in the genre. Blue Star Line was a British passenger and freight company founded in 1911 and operated until 1998. The ship Arandora Star was built in 1927 as a seagoing vessel, and converted in 1929 to a cruise ship and requisitioned as a warship in World War II. On July 2, 1940, she was sunk by a German submarine.
This is an original vintage poster. It is not a reproduction. At the time of writing you will not find this poster for sale elsewhere on the internet and it is unlikely that it will ever be put up for sale in such good condition again.
The frame is not included in the price, but we recommend that you buy a specially made frame with museum glass, which optimally protects against UV radiation, and thus preserves this unique poster and its value.
