1930s French Women's Magazines


I love these vintage women’s magazines that I found.  They all date from the 1930s and, although the central one is mainly concerned with fashion and needlecrafts, the two copies of ‘Mademoiselle’ also contain educational articles on ogival sculpture and extracts from plays.  They have advertisements inside, the kind  you might see reproduced on enamel plaques and all  three of these have supplements inside with embroidery designs for you to trace or copy. 

I can’t believe what good condition they are in considering they are much older than me (which is saying something) – they probably have less wrinkles!
