Double-Sided French Poster - 76cm x 56cm
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 the reception area of a rather smart hotel and the other shows a 1950's school playground.
The hotel scene shows well dressed couples chcking in, relaxing and dining in an upmarket hotel of the period where ladies wear hats and luggage is labelled with brightly coloured travel stickers. The reverse of the poster shows a divided school playground, with boys on one siode of a wire topped stone wall, and girls on the other.
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. 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.
