Rare Ww1 Neyret Freres Woven Silk Patriotic Postcard - Boum Servez Chaud For Sale
Boum! Servez Chaud
There are a number of different themes to the designs woven by Neyret Freres (St Etienne) in the early 1900s. This is one of the rarest patriotic themed designs, probably produced towards the end of WW1. This design is very rare, and was not documented by Chris Radley in his 1978 book The Woven Silk Postcard. This example is in excellent condition with only minor corner wear and discoloration to the frame. The silk panel is in excellent condition. The card is postally unused with a plain back. See scans for details.
This somewhat comical design depicts a rather drunken German soldier sitting at a table with bottles of champagne, and a manic looking British cavalryman about to serve him with a serving tray full of ordnance!
I can combine shipping on multiple postcard purchases at actual shipping cost, and can optionally send via registered mail for an additional fee.
I am listing a few more woven silk pictures and postcards, so please remember to
