Sold. I'm out looking for more but in the meantime head to the shop for more lovely things at www.handmadeandvintage.co.uk
This vintage, French classroom poster is published by Rossignol and is double sided. On one side is Le Stade et LaPiscine and on the other is Le Port. Both are beautifully drawn and detailed with a slight art deco feel, especially to the swimming pool and diving boards.
Rossignol posters were printed on a heavy, off-white paper and have softer colours and a mass of detail that shows French life of the time. All the posters listed are originals and served their time in classrooms. Some have the teacher's name pencilled in the border. They date from the 1940's to the 1960's.
This poster is in good, vintage condition. There are some pinholes to the corners and nibbles to the edges. The main prints are clear with good colours.There is one small tear to the bottom of the print that encroaches slightly into the bottom of the picture - have a look at the last two photos for details.
These posters measure 76cm by 56cm and are printed on a good quality thick paper/card. There are several designs available in the shop.
Sent rolled in a cardboard tube. Postage is £3.50 in the UK.
