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 Le Glacier and on the other, La Montagne Usée.
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 is an original French classroom poster and is in fair, vintage condition. There is damage to the edges which will be hidden when framed. The print has been folded at some time and there is a faint line down the centre which will flatten somewhat once framed. There is a mark to the top right of the Glacier side and foxing marks to teh sky. Please see the pictures above and below.
The colours are still good and this is a sixty year old survivor of the classroom! You could frame many of these faults out if you wanted to, however, I think they are part of the history of the picture and don't really detract from the images.
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.
