With its tobacco product discreetly located on the lower left, this early 20th-century Shanghai poster for Hatamen cigarettes uses a dramatically rendered image to capture the attention of the public. Printed in the 1930s, the lithograph poster demonstrates the rise of Western-style advertising methods, mixing traditional themes with lushly illustrated and narrative-based themes. In this evocative image, two women, their attention focused on a book, enter a room containing an altar table laden with smoking incense, auspicious plants, and other offerings. The impending dark visible through the doorway and the breeze that stirs their garments add a sense of mystery to the scene.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
