La Maison du Porte Plume is a rare poster for fountain pens and inks by the artist Jean D'Ylen. He uses the whimsical central figure to capture our attention and then uses the fine detail of the pens and the ink bottles to let us know what products the store sells. Even though the image was created over 90 years ago, the store is still in existence. We are delighted to find such a rare poster in superb condition.

The whimsical image of the costumed man surrounded by oversized writing instruments and ink bottles is a wonderful example of the artistry and appeal of Jean D’Ylen’s work. Jean D'Ylen (1886 – 1938) was trained in the art of designing jewelry and was recruited by the Vercasson Printing Company to be the understudy to Leonetto Cappiello, their top designer of posters. When Cappiello left Vercasson, D'Ylen assumed the role of top designer. He was a master of combining humorous messages with well executed artwork and masterful colors to create some of the most sought after posters printed in the 1920’s.

  • 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.
