Product description

Original 1947 calendar - The White Sail (harbour scene) - 71st birthday gift
An original vintage calendar from 1947, measuring approximately 12.4 x 16.2cm / 4.9 x 6.4in (plus calendar tab), with a colour print of a harbour scene with sailing boats, entitled "The White Sail", printed on plain card; the signature "[?] CHARPENTIER" (probably Georges Charpentier, a French artist responsible for other paintings of similar style and subject matter, for instance this one entitled "Dans Le Port De La Rochelle" [external link - opens in new window]) is visible to the bottom left.
This is one of a group of original 1947 calendars of various designs which we have acquired as a job lot. These calendars are old shop stock and therefore unused, although they are not in mint condition, having been stored for many years in less-than-ideal conditions. This particular calendar therefore has some ingrained dirt to the top edge of the print (and perhaps to the bottom also), with very slight edge wear and bumping to the lower corners, and may have discoloured slightly with age; there is some ingrained dirt to the back together with some discoloration to the pale blue hanging ribbon; the calendar tab cover is slightly marked with a small patch of damage including a pinhole to the top left, although the tab itself is in good condition apart from slight age discoloration.
It would nevertheless provide an authentic finishing touch to a period room setting - and would make an interesting and unusual birthday gift for anyone who turns 71 in 2018!
