Have a Coke poster

One of my favorite Coca Cola graphics, from way back when.

Thomas, would you know if that is by Haddon Sundblom? Looks like it could be, although I've never seen any Coke ads other than the Santa ones by him.

Glen, I don't know for a certainty who painted this beauty, but based on the style and finish, I would venture to say it's Sundblom. He and Elvgren had an interchangeable style there for a while and they both did non-Santa coke ads, but this feels like Sundblom. Now that I've said that, I'm sure someone of expertise will show me the error of my judgement.

I'll come up with some coke ads that are definitely Sundblom.

Hi Glen! Thie woman in the portrait is actually my grandmother and this poster seems to have gone out of reprint, so I cannot locate it anywhere. Do you have any advice/suggestions as to where I could purchase this poster?
