"House of the Doll" is a distributor for Corolle dolls as well as automates and antique games. They sell antique dolls as well as new replacements for bad heads! See the street sign for "rue des enfants sage"? Well, the street of wise children isn't an actual address in Paris, but apparently is usually associated with sending letters to Santa Claus! This charming Parisian storefront has been immortalized by André Renoux (1939-2002), a French painter considered the "father" of the Paris School of Urban Realism. Artist-signed at the bottom right.

I can't date Renoux postcards precisely but from my online research, comparing the dates of Renoux's original oil paintings and dates on the few used postcards I've come across, I believe these cards are from the late 1980s to the 1990s. Overall in fine unused, like new condition. About 5.75 by 4-1/8 inches.
You may have seen Renoux's Paris shop scenes on Williams Sonoma plates. His original limited-edition serigraphs sell anywhere from $600 to $2,000. Although these postcards are not my usual antique fare, I wanted to offer these because Renoux's Paris shop scenes are difficult for a person in the United States to access and they are highly collectible.
