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.

    Vintage lithograph is great, and very to find. Great pick, zguy!

    We were researching the Tipper's poster and were excited to come across your page as we have the same poster in our family. We're trying to figure out the value. Do you have any idea what the value would be in good condition?

    If your poster is an original stone lithograph like mine, I saw it sell at an auction in the UK for $1100. The poster that sold was in good condition as well but the auction was back in 2006 I believe so value may have increased. And as you know, each poster is ONLY worth what someone is willing to pay. The fact that this poster is extremely rare, and also that yours is in good condition, should only up the value of the poster. This is the case in all lithographs. rarity, and condition determine the value of each poster. I hope I was of some help.
