Peynet Lovers 1988 Antique Salon in Antibes Postcard AdvertisementPeynet Lovers 1988 Antique Salon in Antibes Postcard Advertisement

In 1976, French illustrator Raymond Peynet and his wife moved to Antibes on the French Riviera and in 1988, a museum dedicated to Peynet and his romantic icons, The Lovers (Les Amoureux), was created. That same year, the 16th annual antique and brocante festival of Old Antibes advertised their event with the help of none other than Peynet's darling couple. In this postcard version of a poster design for the event, The Lovers are stepping out of a huge armoire. Note the white cat at the poet's feet and the mouse crawling up the left side of the armoire roof. I have seven of these available and they are all unused and in near mint condition. There is an ink smudge line on the left side of the armoire door inherent to the printing. Also, I must point out that these cards have a hint of tobacco smoke smell. (The French are renown as heavy smokers and I'm actually quite amazed that I haven't had this problem with a lot more items.) Each card is about 4 x 6 inches.

I have several more Peynet cards available. Just use Peynet in the word search box at the top of my shop home page to see them all. Remember: postage is the same flat rate of $4.25 for one postcard or for 10 and if you BUY More, you'll Save More. Details on discounts from $10-$35 for multiple purchases on my shop home page.
