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 busy scene at the town's bus station, and the other shows a garden in Spring. This poster dates from the late 1950's/early 1960's.
The bus station scene captures the bustle of the French town and the characters that live there. We get glimpses of contemporay adverts and films - Bambi is on at the local cinema. By contrast, the Spring garden is more restful with children helping to pick cherries and tend the vegetables of an incredibly neat plot!
These 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.
