The well-known image of the "Don" representing Sandeman was drawn by the artist George Massiot Brown who was, in fact, Scottish by birth. He worked in France and approached the Sandeman Company in 1928 for work. Since French posters were very much in vogue at the time, Brown was commissioned to create an image to promote the Porto & Sherry produced by Sandeman. Ingeniously, Brown signed his work G. Massiot to hide his Scottish origins and pretend to be French. The actual Don image was only so named in 1935, when it was first used on a bottle and has since been adopted as the global symbol of the company. The Sandeman Company, founded in 1790, is still very active and produces a broad range of products selling internationally. (Sandeman Company website).
Unfortunately, little is known of George Massiot Brown aside from this one creation.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
