Guinness Is Good For You Alice In Wonderland Mad Hatter Gilroy

£1,500.00

Original vintage Guinness advertising poster featuring a fun and rare Alice in Wonderland themed illustration by the notable artist John Gilroy (John Thomas Young Gilroy; 1898-1985) of the Mad Hatter's Tea Party depicting a colourful cartoon image of the iconic Mad Hatter character with his arms crossed under his polka dot bow tie, sitting at a table next to the animal characters including The March Hare, Mouse and The Lory (parrot) and Alice in Wonderland, created by the well-known English writer Lewis Carroll (Charles Lutwidge Dodgson; 1832-1898), with the stylised text and conversation on the poster reading - Why was the Hatter mad? (Still more apologies to Lewis Carroll) "Have some Guinness?" asked the March Hare. "I don't see any Guinness," Alice replied. "There isn't any" said the March Hare. "Then you must be mad to offer me some!" said Alice, indignantly. "It's after hours," said the Hatter, "and we can't get any. That's enough to make anyone mad." "But surely you could have ordered some to drink at home," said Alice. "There!" said the March Hare. "We never thought of that. That just shows how mad we must be." Guinness Is Good For You. One of the world's most popular beer drink brands, Guinness is an Irish dry stout founded by Arthur Guinness in Dublin in 1759. Printed in Great Britain by The Dangerfield Printing Co. Ltd, London.
