This vintage, French classroom poster is published by Rossignol and is double sided. One side shows a beautiful florist shop and the other has a view of 1960's school Christmas party.
The scene is a detailed view of a lovely French florist shop in the early 1960's. Smart ladies inspect pot plants, men choose bouquets and white coated ladies preside over all. The reverse shows a classroom with a fabulous Christmas tree. There is a party going on, attended by local adults, with presents being given out to the children. The attention to detail is fantastic.
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, the Christmas tree side has deeper colours, the florist is more gentle - it may even have an overall fade - but the colours are still good. There is a small mark to the top left - see photos.
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.
