1930-1940s Original McIntosh Hawaiian Print 'The Celebration'

1930-1940s Original McIntosh Hawaiian Print 'The Celebration' in HAWAIIANA

$175.00




Vintage original bamboo framed Frank McIntosh menu print for Matson's Luxury Liners, featuring a gorgeous flower-filled scene of lei making and hula dancing. We have six different mint McIntosh prints available – not reproductions!

What a fantastic set of original vintage menu prints that we have! These are in excellent, mint condition, having been stored away for over 50 years. The colors are rich, bright, and crisp with no fading which is amazing for their age. Each print is professionally framed in one-half inch bamboo wood, which has aged beautifully to a honey color. These are in their original frames, which you can tell by the early framing techniques and materials. Each is framed with glass and a sturdy backing, then wrapped with paper, and finished with screw eyes, wire, and two tiny corner nails which act as wall bumpers. The print image area measures 8 inches by 11 inches, and the framed finish size is 9.25 inches by 12.25 inches.

The artist, Frank McIntosh, was commissioned by the Matson Navigation Company to create memorable keepsake menus for their voyages and other marketing materials. In order to generate excitement and allure for Hawai'i as a world class tourist destination, Matson developed an ambitious and enduring advertising campaign. Their famed luxury liners, the 'white ships' were instrumental in the development of tourism in Hawai'i in the late 1920s and 1930s.

This highly colorful and romantic series of Hawai'i captures the spirit and romance of the islands during this time period. We have six prints in our Hawaiiana category, each sold separately. These are original vintage menu prints and are not reproductions! Please contact us via our Contact page if you are interested in purchasing the entire set, as it would be wonderful to keep them together.

This original vintage McIntosh print is entitled The Celebration, and it qualifies for Free Shipping!
