A sweet piece of vintage advertising pulled from the archive courtesy of this Lanvin Chocolate poster.
It comes from the archives of Lanvin Chocolat whose rich advertising history also features an 1970 advert featuring Salvador Dali declaring himself crazy for the product. This particular piece features Red Riding Hood feeding the wolf with the chocolate and apparently dates from 1961. Its bright colour and childish style is just as charming today.
The poster costs $14.99

If you find yourself chained to the kitchen in a bid to feed your hungry family, this London Transport tea towel will certainly give you food for thought. The tea towel shows an advert from 1949 which asks 'Why not a canteen job?'. The design is typically of the period and it lists the benefits on offer to canteen workers. The offer of extra pay for Sundays and relief duties will certainly seem appealing if your culinary efforts go unappreciated!
The tea towel is on sale from Whitbread Wilkinson for £5 who also reproduce the same design on an apron for £10.
