Mantilla Beauty by C. J. Sternberg

This image is from an ad by Textron from 1949. Textron was a manufacturer of fine lingerie. This ad features a midriff slip rich with Alencon type lace. Romantic as a mantilla, exciting as a flirting fan. Isn't the painting by C. J. Sternberg (Charlotte Jean Sternberg) beautiful? During the late forties Textron enhanced their already sterling reputation for precision parachuting materials by hiring some exceptionally talented in-house artists- C.J. Sternberg among them- to sell fabrics by weaving tales of incomparably splendor and beauty.


Today we share some other of her images for Textron from the late 1940s.
