This is a vintage envelope mailed July 6, 1930, from a bank in Nice, France, to Monsieur Alfred Delage in Saint-Symphorien (a part of Tours) in the Indre-et-Loire départment or county. It is torn and tattered and depending upon one's viewpoint, it's a shabbily chic, stunning piece of vintage ephemera once it's turned over to reveal the deeply embossed "BS" red wax seals. For the historian, it's of note that this was the Banque Speciale, for the development of French industry. Given the date, perhaps these funds were for a building project to stave off the effects of the Great Depression. This envelope is about 9.75 by 5.75 inches. The wax seals are as pictured, a deep, rich, dark maroon. Unfortunately, I couldn't capture the true color of the envelope: a warm antique beige.
