Description:
"Allied Soldiers at Attention" is a design from the second La Victoire series, produced by H.R. Mallinson & Co. in conjunction with the Peace Conference held after the armistice that ended the fighting in World War I. A tribute to the armed forces of the Allied nations, this design from the second La Victoire series features five soldiers in dress uniforms with their national emblems – perhaps a guard of honor for the peace negotiations then in progress at the Palace of Versailles, whose gardens and fountains appear in the background. Printed in five brilliant colors on a black ground of Mallinson's trademark "Pussy Willow.",
