I love Hilda! A red-headed, vibrant pin-up girl for forty plus years by artist Duane Bryers, she began her debut in 1957. Each painting is unique...Hilda is so full of life and her ribs are not sticking out. :) She starred in advertising calendars of all sizes and shapes. Making a perfect collectible.
There are other Hilda advertising collectibles from water glasses to playing cards. But, the calendars were the main-stay for 47 years!
Feel free to add any "Hilda" collecting tid-bits or other vintage advertising calendars.
It's that time again! Hilda posing - vintage style - with "Won't You be my Valentine?" Can you imagine the smiles when those advertising calendars were flipped to this page??
Gearing up for March and St Patrick's Day..
Vintage Advertising Celebrity and Pin-up girl, Hilda, is celebrating by wearing a green bikini and throwing her lucky horseshoes!
"According to the blog Messy Nessy Chic, Hilda is a vintage icon who was "one of history’s longest running calendar queens" alongside Marilyn Monroe and others." Nataly Los Angeles
Vintage advertising HILDA...in the spring! Pin-up girl in the midst of spring flowers...
Came across this blog this morning that says exactly what I think...the very BEST in vintage advertising calendars and such.
Yesterday, I discovered a new artist! Well, I don't mean I discovered him literally, I'm quite sure I'm one of the last to find him and his work, considering he is 100 years old now. (There is film of his 100th birthday celebration on YouTube!)
Even though HILDA is my all time favorite, been trying to focus on other old vintage calendars. Here are two this morning from Antique Trader. I love how they have beautifully framed them.
"Hilda was visual magic created by Duane Byers in 1957 for a Bigalow & Brown calendar and she challenged the conventional pin-up for more than 20 years. I distinctly remember coming across her years ago and instantly knowing that if she was a real person... we would have been best friends. " The Militant Baker
Summertime Hilda! Love.
