Cafe Charbons opened at 109 Rue Oberkampf in Paris in 1863 and it is still in operation! Artist Fanny Darnat has immortalized it in what I call the Grandma Moses style or what the French call "naif." Circa 1980s; possibly earlier. I can't find detailed information about Mlle. Darnat but in the October 1984 issue of New York magazine, there is a notice among Soho and Tribeca events: FANNY DARNAT-Paintings of Paris, in oil on wood, that evoke this city's romantic atmosphere in the '50s, thru 11/15. Naifs et Primitifs, 172 Prince. Her art work has appeared in a variety of magazines and apparently one of Darnat's illustrations even inspired a dress designed for Jackie Kennedy!
Overall fine vintage condition; one has stains verso but this doesn't affect the front at all. Modern postcard size, about 5.75 by 4 inches. PLEASE NOTE: the card with the light stains verso is the one I have left.
