In tandem with a growing number of newspapers and periodicals, print advertising proliferated during China’s Republic Era. A bathing beauty is the star attraction of this print ad from around 1920. With Western features, a body-conscious pose, and a flapper-like indifference, the woman reflects how Western mores and aesthetic style accompanied global commerce. Still vibrantly colored, the ad demonstrates the sophisticated printing methods available to commercial artists of the time. Prized by collectors, such ads give a unique glimpse of the past.

“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.”
