BONUS #13:  That shaving mirror is very well hung.

Cintura Calliano

This absolutely gorgeous ad is actually just about a magical belt that prevents seasicknessSee him shaking his tiny fist defiantly at the sea, as he struggles not to turn as green as the sky?  But hey, it won a gold medal at the Torino 1898 Exposition and he's definitely my kind of hunky.

The artist is Adolfo Hohenstein (1854-1928), considered the "father of Italian poster art".  Every one of his poster ads should be shared here, but there are too many.
