Va-jel: A rare American advertisement for "Va-Jel" birth control by George Petty, circa 1940. Petty (1894-1975) created the "Petty Girl," an American pin-up icon who captured the nation's heart. From 1933-1956 her likeness was seen on countless calendars, magazine centerfolds, advertisements, posters, billboards and specialty products.
Uncommon subject matter and great find for the Petty collector. This lithograph is printed on canvas.
