Terrot of Dijon was at one time the largest manufacturer of motorcycles in France. An innovative designer of both motor and peddle bikes, Terrot won races in numerous classes and events during the first half of the twentieth century. The iconic marque fell into disuse following the acquisition by the Peugot group in 1958 with production in Dijon ceasing in 1961.
This poster seeks to emphasise the versatility of Terrot’s products: suitable for the professional rider or courier as well the recreational cyclist. It was designed by artist Victor Dumay who produced several posters for Terrot during the 1930s and again in the 1950s. He used the initials “TDT” visible in the bottom right corner. The printers name “Affiches Gaillard, Paris” runs along the lower border.
The poster was acquired with a vertical tear running from the border to the riders helmet. Some water staining is visible in the top right corner. The poster has been professionally cleaned, repaired and linen backed. The original poster dimensions were 80x120cm, and including the backing are now 85x124cm. It is a large poster, in very good condition and looks great.
Postage: please note, due to the size of some some posters and added weight in the case of linen backing, additional postage charges will apply. Please be assured, we will strive to keep these charges as low as possible without compromising on our core objective of providing fast and secure delivery to our customers.
