Edgar Church Heights Plumbing Co. Advertisement Original Art (Church Studio, 1944). Steaming-hot water never looked so inviting as when drawn by Church, a legend among advertising designers. This fine Deco-style piece has two pedigrees -- originally designed for Sanitary Plumbing Co. of Albuquerque, then reworked for Heights Plumbing of El Paso. A paste-in flap showing the Heights identity overlays the original Sanitary logotype. (Church is known to comics buffs as the compiler of the fabled Mile High collection of Golden Age titles.) Ink, Zipatone shading, and white highlights over graphite on Bristol board. Image area, 10" x 15". Excellent condition.
