天河配. [Tian he pei]. [Chinese Minguo Poster - Couples on River of Heaven]

[天津].[Tianjin]. 富華印刷局.[Fu hua yin shua ju]. (circa 1930). Stock ID #161978

Attractive Chinese Minguo poster in colour, laid down on paper backing, featuring four beautifully dressed fairies on the right, one Chinese immortal floating on a piece of cloud and another immortal [?] standing in the front. Loss upper left corner not affect the image, very good. Text in traditional Chinese. Sheet measures 36 x 50cm.

The title 天河配 [Tian he pei] is very similar to another well-known Chinese mythological folktale 天仙配 [Tian xian pei] while the latter is love story between the youngest daughter of the Jade Emperor and a mortal name 董永 "Dong Yong". It is not clear if the poster portraits the same tale, but it certainly shows the scene of a beautiful fairy meeting a man in the centre.
