An auction of turnip seeds with far-fetched medical claims? Which sort of wild oats exactly are we talking about? And who is Joseph Newman, the mysterious auctioneer? This can only be a print from the curious world of Vintage Mashups.
Beautifully assembled from bits of real vintage posters and artistically ‘aged' to perfection (it looks like it's been folded up and left in your grandparents' loft), Stupendous Collection of Turnip Seeds is available in three variations and each print comes with an information sheet.

Prints are framed professionally, to order, by a Guild Commended Framer using archival-quality materials and usually ship within 7 working days.
Frames are available in a vintage-looking, ‘distressed’ black finish that perfectly matches the aesthetic of the print. The frame is sealed on the back to prevent dust from entering and D-ring attachments and hanging cord are also fitted so that the print will arrive ready to hang. A card is also attached to the rear of the frame containing information about the print and how it was made.
High-quality acrylic is used in place of glass for all shipped orders. It is visibly identical, but should not be cleaned or polished with abrasives.
The price includes shipping, so no additional charge will be added at checkout. We package framed prints carefully to protect them from damage during shipping. Framed prints are shipped via Parcelforce and a tracking number will be sent to you via email as the print is dispatched.
The overall dimensions of the frame are: Width = 366mm, Height = 519mm, Depth = 20mm. The frame itself is 25mm wide all around.
