(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $1,500.00 +
Sold Price: $2,126.60 (includes buyer's premium)


Magnificent color 24 x 39 poster designed by John Sjovard for the Equestrian Games of the 1956 Summer Olympics held in Stockholm, Sweden. The poster depicts a classical rider atop a rearing horse, with Olympic rings and information in the lower border, "Equestrian Games of the XVIth Olympiad, 1956, Stockholm, 10th-17th June." Printed by Esselte, Stockholm. Framed to a slightly larger size. The main 1956 Summer Games were held in Melbourne, Australia, but the equestrian events could not be held there due to quarantine regulations; Stockholm was chosen as the alternative site. The equestrian events began in June, nearly six months earlier than the official opening ceremonies in Melbourne.

Due to the size and fragile nature of this item, it is considered OVERSIZED.  Please call RR Auction for a shipping quote.
