Item details

12 original VINTAGE FRENCH HUMOROUS POSTCARD's French Bawdy Postcards, Cartes Postales.

They are from a series Gauloiseries Francaises - which means Bawdy French Humour. They are line drawn and then colour tinted, some are signed by the artist - APT. and AJ. The sent ones date from 1918 - 1931.

These postcards are delightful and rather eccentric A bit risque or bawdy. For example the woman is saying she has been given a present from her husband and the maid is saying she has been given a present too! The man in the rain wants to come under the womans hat too as it is like an umbrella.

7 have been sent and 5 are unused. Some have stamps on the front as was common at this time.

For collectors of postcards, perfect for scrapbooking or framing as a collage. Ideal for your own project, card making for example. I found them in an old collectors folder. They deserve another life.

CONDITION: Six of the cards are in good condition with no creases or worn corners. - this includes the 2 ladies in gowns and the black and white line drawing. 6 are a bit more worn - this includes the dog accident, the maid, the 2 with boys, the lady playing cards and the lady in the grass with airoplane, The corners are still pretty good. The cards are yellowed with age, please look closely at the pictures to see the condition.

Postcards will be shipped by standard shipping. IF YOU WISH TRACKING please select the shipping upgrade. They will be sent in clear protector with cardboard on each side and an envelope.

If you wish to purchase more than one item I will combine shipping when possible, please ask.
