This is an original stone lithograph poster from my private collection. It is from B.C. Tipper and Son veterinary Works company in Birmingham. Circa 1910. This ad clearly portrays the "No Bull" approach to their superior pet medicines. Notice the other brands of medicines are titled "Quack Medicines", due to their misleading advertising. I have yet to see another one of these posters in the U.S. and have only seen 1 other sell at an auction in the U.K.
This poster has been in the family for decades and was destroyed when it fell off the wall during the Northridge earthquake in 1994. The glass frame had broken and sliced this poster to pieces. I have restored this poster as best as I could and it now hangs in my Los Angeles home for round 2.
The first picture here was taken during the restoration and linen backing process and the second picture is the finished product framed on my wall.
