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 a French Municiple Park on the other is a kitchen scene. Both are beautifully drawn and detailed; the park scen especially is filled with characters and activities.
The 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 but the main prints are clear with good colours.
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.
