This incredibly rare poster was created in 1950 to advertise Dutch electronics brand Philips. Founded in 1891, Philips was one of the biggest electronics brands in the UK and continues to trade today, focusing on health technology. Reading "Eclairez Vous Mieux", or "Enlighten You Better", this gorgeous poster depicts a young child and teddy inside an illuminated lightbulb. Lightbulbs were the companies first offering. 

This extra large piece was designed by the iconic poster and graphic designer Bernard Villemot. Known for his minimalist Art Deco aesthetic, his works for the likes of Bally, Orangina, Perrier and Air France are among the most influential and sought after pieces of advertising history.
