vintage israeli advertising art

Recently, Himself had the opportunity to spend a couple of weeks in Israel. Not his first trip, so he had a chance to catch up with friends and colleagues.

As you might imagine, I am “high-maintenance” and beg piteously for presents for every trip I deem worthy.

Boise, Idaho, doesn’t make the list, although I have gotten some nice presents from there. Nor Herlock, Maryland. Sorry.

Israel definitely counts.

Compounding my good luck, one of his outings was to an outdoors artists market, where he got some lovely glass coasters featuring some nifty Israeli vintage advertising art.

SOOOOOO cool. Check out a few of my favorites:

Atara (corona, crown, tiara…) coffee
Astar (Esther? The queen?) skin cream
The fresh egg
‎'Leshed' (the essence of….) by Yitzhar – the choice (premium) oil!

Himself has posted an album of the entire set over at Facebook. (Thank you, Ayelet, for the captions! :-))
