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 Les Points Cardinaux and on the other, Le Plan de L'Ecole.
The main picture of the school is actually for talking about the points of the compass but the illustration is a lovely image of a French school playground at break time. There is a view of the street to one side showing people and an iconic car that place the scene firmly in the early sixties. The reverse shows a view of the school from above.
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 original French poster is in excellent vintage condition. There are some pinholes to the corners and nibbles to the edges but the main print on both sides is clear with good colours.
These posters measure 76cm by 56cm and are printed on a good quality thick paper/card. There are several different designs available in the shop.
Sent rolled in a cardboard tube. Postage is £3.50 in the UK.
