The Hotel Frontenac is now the Hotel Chateau Frontenac, a 4-star luxury hotel still at its original address "just a few strides from the Avenue des Champs-Élysées." According to their web site, the hotel "used to be home to the famous cabaret Le Gerny's where Édith Gassion started her career before she became the legendary Edith Piaf." The artist-signed Native American design is rooted in the history of the hotel's namesake: Louis de Buade, comte de Frontenac, was the French colonial administrator who governed New France (1672-1682 and 1689-1698) and held Quebec against the British in King William's War (1690).
The label measures just over 5 1/2 by 4 inches. My online research says this is circa 1935-1940s. Creases at the bottom corners and tape bleed-through from the back. This is one of scores of vintage original luggage labels I have available (see the last photo). I'll be adding more each week.
If you would be interested in a luggage label from a certain city in France or from a specific country, send me a message and I'll look through my stash. I'll get it listed and notify you to give you first opportunity at buying it, but at no obligation. Your requests help me narrow down where to start when I have so many of something, whether it be postcards, luggage labels or other ephemera. Merci beaucoup!
