4 Magazines Tomatoes, Basket of Veg, Hops & Pumpkins
4 vintage French gardening magazines with vintage vegetable illustrations on the front covers. One magazine has May flowers and another has chicks on the back cover.
The dates of the magazines are:
23 May 1948
21 May 1950
13 January 1952
9 September 1953
There are articles on French rural life, both in the home and outdoors, some of which are supported with color and black and white prints and photographs. The front covers would look great framed as wall art, whilst the articles and adverts inside the magazine are a great source of ephemera for craft projects.
The magazines have minimal wear to the old newsprint. Small stains from use. Turnover crease on tomato front cover.
The approximate dimensions of the hop and pumkin magazines are:
Height: 28 cms (11 inches)
Width: 19.5 cms (7 7/10 inches)
The tomato and basket of veg cover magazines measure slightly less.
