Looking for Mabel Normand

Madcap Mabel Normand


     This particular poster has been restored though the kindness and generous heart of our dear, dear friend Nicholas Scahill.  He wrote that the magnificent poster of Mabel Normand in Sam Goldwyn’s “PEST” – “Le Petit Demon du Village” has been returned from the restorer this week and before it goes off to Christies to find a new home, Nick sent us a scan. 

     The poster is 66 x 49 including the linen backing. I personally love the fashions depicted on the mannequins, they are just fantastic.  By the way the shadows on the top on the poster are from the scanning; the poster is all things bright and beautiful.

     Most of Nick’s collection is Victorian, so if anyone would like to swap him Mabel for a nice Gilbert & Sullivan, let me know and I’ll get you in touch with him.    

Isn’t Mabel just grand!
