Vintage Paris Souvenir Scarf - 1930s 40s French Tourist Sites - France Watercolor Parisian Artisan Souvenir - Blue Pink Silk Map - 49652

$ 34.99

A rare 1940s scarf in watercolor painted silk, so chic with its Deco bubbles and Paris landmarks. It was made in France, hand colored by a Parisian artisan and signed in the lower right corner. The central square of the scarf was originally a map of Paris (now faded to ethereal obscurity) and various tourist scenes, the largest displaying the Eiffel Tower. Dates to the 1930s or 40s.

32 x 34 Inches


None, expertly made by hand with hand-rolled hems, watercolor signature says " Lucien Michel Paris "

Wedgwood blue silk foulard with details in icy pale blue, shocking pink, grayed lavender, powder blue; this is a true watercolor painted silk, not a print

None needed


Condition Detail
Has a 1/8-inch hole along the blue border near the signature, the hand painted details are faded in the central square, less faded in the bubbles, all noticeable; some minor paint bleeding between the border and pale center, this is an artist's flaw
