This vintage, French classroom poster is published by Rossignol and is double sided. On one side is La Rentrée and on the other is Les Vendanges. Both are beautifully drawn and detailed with bright colours and clear prints. The playground perfectly captures the return to school at the beginning of an autumn term.
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 vintage French poster is in good condition. There are some pinholes to the corners and nibbles to the edges. The school print has some old pencil marks that may well be erased with careful treatment. The grape-pickers is in excellent condition with just a tiny mark on the main man's trousers which will flatten on framing. The original Rossignol stamp is visible in the top left corner.
These posters measure 76cm by 56cm and are printed on a good quality thick paper/card. There are several designs available in the shop.
