These 2 litho Beardsley posters Peacock Skirt and Ali Baba are not in the best of shape with small-to-nasty creases and a little mat burn, but what I can't figure out is when they are from. I'm guessing they're from the 60's, since that was when he had his big resurgence, but it's just a guess. Paper seems to be rag, but is on the thin side. Frames are likely original, but taken apart and repainted at some time (guessing that's when the pints got their lovely creases). Both measure 20" x 27" and have no print makers mark. More info would be greatly appreciated!

I've got one with a green background that screams 1972. I'll put a shot of it on here next time I dig through.

Hi, yeah I think that they belong to the middle of 60's... Also the posters placed below are very nice and they also seem to be on the same side. But the difference is that its dimensions are 9 x 12 in...
