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 shows an action packed scene from the life of Jean Bart, a 17th century French privateer, the reverse depicts soldiers of Louis 14th as they recruit men in a small village.
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 vintage French poster is in very good condition. There are some pinholes to the corners and nibbles to the edges but the prints are clear with good colours. The Jean Bart image is a beautifully observed scene which would be perfect on the walls of anyone who loves pirate scenes!
These posters measure 76cm by 56cm and are printed on a good quality thick paper/card. There are several designs available in the shop.
