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 a market in full swing and the other shows a country hunt. This poster dates from the late 1950's/early 1960's.
The main image perfectly depicts a market from the 1960's with fruit and vegetables as well as livestock, textiles and household items. The hunting scene again offers a detailed view of contemporary country life.
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. There is one small tear that encroaches slightly but on the whole, 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.
