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. One side shows L'Automne and on the other is Le Plan du Village. Both are beautifully drawn and detailed.
The street scene is one of a set of four that shows the same view in all of the seasons - the others are available in the shop. In autumn the trees are shown with the leaves turning, the harvest of fruit and vegetables is being gathered and the children wear hats and scarves as they return from school. The plan shows an areial view of the village with clear soft colours.
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 but the main prints are clear with good colours on both sides.
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.
