GUINNESS ADVERTISING Anthony Groves-Raines ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS GE1363
The Illustrated London News
BOTTLE AND JUG
It shows Alice, the King, Hatta and Haigha discussing the looking glass land practise of sending people to jail BEFORE they take someone's Guinness, so that when it happens no one will mind. There is a nonsense style verse beneath the image subtitled A passage which, by some oversight, Lewis Carroll never wrote. From the art work of Anthony Groves-Raines, miel and bearing the Guinness ad. number GE 1363. Info. The March Hare and Hatter of the first book, Alice in Wonderland, make a brief re-appearance in the guise of Anglo Saxon messengers called Haigha and Hatta. This would look lovely framed.
On the reverse is the red top edged advertising page from the illustrated London News showing adverts for: Bulmers Pomagne – McVitie and price biscuit – Cerebos salt - Greys Cigarettes – Sumrie Clothes - Reive – Ronuk polishes - Paripan Enamel - United British Insurance Company.
