This is an original and EXTREMELY rare French half sheet size advertising lithograph from my private collection of Advertising posters. Depicting a man wearing a stylish handlebar mustache standing next to a bicycle sporting mustache handlebars, this 1893 lithograph advertised the Milders Fils chainless two-wheel Cyclone bicycle. (I believe Milders Fils may have invented "Le Cyclone", a bicycle without chains) The English translation of this poster: Cyclone Cycle without chain, Milders Son Manufacture Plant.
This poster has been in my family for over 50 years and has recently been restored and framed. This image is one of the most reproduced ads to date, I have yet to find another original lithograph of this poster.
