Rare German and American WWI & WWII Posters Auction March 10th

Posted by Dinesh Kumar on February 23rd, 2022

More than 140 lots of rare and vintage posters – mainly World War II German and American propaganda posters and war bonds posters – will come up for bid in Vintage Poster Auction #105, slated for Thursday, March 10th, by Fairhill Auction, starting promptly at 11 am Eastern time. This will be an online-only auction with no live in-gallery bidding available.

“The German WWII propaganda posters originate from one consignor\'s decades-old collection and contain some of the rarest examples out there, mainly held by institutions and archives in the United States and in Europe,” said Andreas Kornfeld, president and owner of Fairhill Auction.

Mr. Kornfeld added, “This was an exciting project for us. It took over a year to finalize the German propaganda collection. While the catalog is small in scale it contains some real gems that are very difficult to find, especially in this condition. We have high hopes for this sale.”

There are three posters that could easily end up being the auction’s top lot. The first is an American World War II poster titled This Is the Enemy, with artwork by Karl Koehler (1913-2000) and Victor Ancona (1912-1998). The 34 inch by 24 inch poster was the winner of the National War Poster competition of 1942 and carries a pre-sale estimate of ,000-,000.
