FRAMED RARE WINCHESTER SHOT SHELL STORE DISPLAY “SHOOT THEM AND AVOID TROUBLE”.

Winchester display poster from “THE AMERICAN LITHOGRAPH NY”, copyright Winchester Repeating Arms Co 1908. Humorous image of a skunk being prodded out of a hollow log. Two African-American boys and their dog reacting to a fleeing skunk exiting the log, their shotgun propped against the log. Titled “SHOOT THEM AND AVOID TROUBLE” at the bottom of the piece with “WINCHESTER LOADED SHOT GUN SHELLS” at the top. The image is flanked by “THE/”W”/BRAND” small logo on each side. The wording was widely regarded as inappropriate and Winchester recalled the posters to remove the slogan. Mounted in contemporary frame. Image measures 33″ long x 25″ wide. CONDITION: Poster retains bright colors with about a half dozen light vertical creases. Paper with minor age crackling which do not detract. Overall a very nice piece. 50987-1 TJW (2,000-4,000) – Lot 2086
