LAMINATED WALL PLAQUE LOURDES FRANCE MADE C1890-1900
These religious wall plaques were once common in France. Made to preserve
fragile paper images, they were created using color postcards and prints of the period.
This one is circa 1880 to 1900 and NOT LATER;
is is plastic covered, and if it were not as old as it is, we would say it was laminated,
however it doesn't have a heat-set plastic coating but is covered with an actual piece of plastic
laid over the front and wrapped around to the back, in much the same way a bottom sheet
goes on a bed. The front image is created from layered papers; the blue speckled border
lays over the stripped paper , and on top of both is a color postcard depicting visitors
praying beneath the display in the grotto of Lourdes France, of the apparition of the Virgin
to Saint Bernadette Soubirius. The piece overall measures 7.3 inches x 5.5 inches // 18,5cm x 14cm.
The inset postcard only measures 5.5 inches x 3.5 inches // 14cm x 9cm.
This has a plain cardboard back.
