Vintage travel posters on all sides are giving a very retro feel to the shop and somehow it all feels a bit Agatha Christie.
Of course the one I prefer turns out to be the rarest and most valuable; Roger Broder’s ‘Sainte-Maxime. Plage d’Hiver et d’Été’ is an original railway poster produced by the S.N.C.F in Paris in 1936. The intense lithographic colours are absolutely jaw-dropping. It’s expensive, but fills a lot of wall!
Anyone else really ready for the weekend? We love this 19th-century print of a priest celebrating after (hopefully) the last service of the day! .
Humorous original French lithograph titled "Apres L'Office," depicting a smiling woman with a glass in hand standing with an apparently inebriated man in clerical dress holding a bottle of wine, with a serpent (bass wind instrument) slung over his arm. 25.5 x 33.5 cm. .
We think this would make a great holiday gift for the clergyperson, church musician or wine lover in your life 😀 Check it out at schubertiademusic.com.
Sometimes it's more about the story than the objects themselves. This collection of 18 1896 $1 silver certificate "educational" notes came with in with an envelope reading "On December 12th 1896 18th anniversary of their wedding." These 18 notes in relatively great shape had been keep together as an 18th wedding anniversary gift from husband to wife in the same envelope for almost 120 years.
#fbf to one of the best moments of my life. Taking my medal to get engraved and finding my name forever on the participant wall. Two weeks later and it still feels like yesterday I accomplished something only 1% of the world has. This isn’t bragging. This is hoping someone sees my journey and finds their own whatever that journey may be. Fully supporting y’all till you cross your finish line.
