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 La Montagne Jeune and on the other, La Colline.
The mountain scene is a beautiful view of the river and valley with the snow capped mountains beyond. If you love mountain holidays then these soft colours perfectly capture the alpine feel of being in the landscape. The picture of the hill is a much sharper, more graphic illustration with a farmer viewing a hill top village in the distance.
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 good vintage condition. There are some pinholes to the corners and nibbles to the edges. 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 different designs available in the shop.
Sent rolled in a cardboard tube. Postage is £3.50 in the UK.
