Sato Cigarettes Print

Availability: In stock

A print of Sato Cigarettes, 1933, by an unknown designer.

Sato was a cigarette brand based in Lausanne, Switzerland, that used dark "Turkish" tobacco. In earlier posters for the company, Charles Loupot created a vaguely Ottoman female mascot, opulently smoking while seated on a floor pillow. When Turkish tobacco fell out of favor after WWI, the company's marketing pivoted to the abstracted ethnically-ambiguous female figure seen here. Her features are formed of almond-shaped curves that echo the slender plume of smoke undulating from her cigarette.

Measures 15.25 x 11 inches. Ships rolled.
