Paris Hatbox Girls Retro 1962-63 Postcard Artist SignedParis Hatbox Girls Retro 1962-63 Postcard Artist SignedParis Hatbox Girls Retro 1962-63 Postcard Artist Signed

Here's one of those mystery artist postcards. The artwork of the darling duo with Paris Mode hatboxes is signed "S. Reno" of Paris. The publisher (note: in "Western Germany") names the artist as Russo Reno. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any information online about Reno no matter how I configured the name, with or without the initial. This artist is acknowledged in the French postcard "Bible," Les Meilleures Cartes Postales d'Illustrateurs by Neudin, but other than the name, no details available. The image itself is a definite throw back to the 1950s and '60s. Many ceramic figurines were produced in this style. I recall the thick black lashes!
I have two cards available. If you have a preference, make a note when you put in your order: with or without the Bonne Fete sticker. The postcard without the sticker has two light superficial creases at the center edge; it is hand-dated 1963. The Bonne Fete sticker card also has a hint of an impression at top center, but overall, especially for their age, both cards are in fine vintage condition. Modern postcard size, about 4x6 inches.
