1920's FRENCH POCHOIR HOLIDAY CARD

$60.00

Stunning original hand-colored greeting card with exceptionally bright original color! Pochoir required the adroit use of pigments and metallic inks applied by hand through finely cut stencils.  

Classic Original Art Deco Design!

The Pochoir Process was rejuvenated in France in the 1920’s during the Art Deco era. This expensive stencil color application technique pushed the color illustration processes for  books and prints to glorious new heights. The hand application of layers of pigment created dazzling effects that the camera or printing press could not replicate. 

Card size: 4 7/8 x 6 1/8". This item is presented in an archival mat (8 x 10").
