La Maison de la Poupée Corolle Dolls Storefront Vintage Postcard Artist Signed André Renoux
"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 have been offering his postcards in lots of 4-5, but decided to try something different with my latest arrivals from across the Atlantic. I'm offering these individually so you can mix and match to your own taste, whether you want to create a particular theme, color, all horizontal or all vertical, whatever. It is quite time consuming to scan front, back and groupings of cards, so please bear with me. I'll be adding others available throughout the week. To see all the Renoux cards currently available, use RENOUX in the word search box. If you see a card you'd like to buy individually that is part of one of the group listings, message me and I'll see if I have an individual card to offer/get listed for you ASAP. As you mix and match, remember with a minimum $50 order, you'll get a $10 discount, and shipping within the US is $3.75 whether you buy one or 10, so collect away! Details on my shop home page on how to handle check out so I can change the price before you pay to give you your savings.
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.
