Here is another design for the Eiffel Tower label. These are a bit larger than the others shown thus far. They measure 35mm x 48mm perf. tip to perf. tip., and they are photogravure printings.

Daniel Jules Alexis Brottier, a French Roman Catholic priest, founded The Orphans of Auteuil in 1923. In 1936, upon his death, "Fifteen thousand Parisians attended his Funeral Mass." According to Wikipedia, "He was declared venerable in 1983 and then beatified on the 25th of November 1984 by Pope John Paul II".

This cinderella, printed by photogravure, shows orphan boys learning shoe repair.

Thanks Rod. The story behind the stamp always makes it more interesting, IMO.

Absolutely Bob.
There is also a powerful story in the image.

We are losing, through mass production, the ability to "make things"
which when we did, engendered self worth, and self respect.

I was just recently reading about a 14 year old Aussie lass, just completed 6 years of Blacksmithing, making knives.
Heartwarming stuff.

These 1939 Cinderellas celebrate the 150th anniversary of the French Revolution. The smiling Robespierre is flanked by Saint-Just and Marat. The labels are offset printed.

Here is an older one. This nicely engraved cinderella serves as the return address label of (stamp dealer?) L. Bernard of Paris.. The engraver did not sign it, but you can see his "inspiration" in the last scan.

Rod, I snagged this one many years ago. Ran across it yesterday in a cover box. Feel free to use the pics.

There must have been a large number of engravers in Paris in the first half of the 20th century. It is very odd to think of a person taking a small print job to an engraver.

When I Googled "L. Bernard, Paris" it showed Societe L. Bernard, a manufacturer of fur articles. Don't know if there is any connection.

Anyway, they had a very good taste and the engraver, also, did a very good job. You can see Paris' arms on the place of the stamp value. Nice cinderella!

I don't have many French cinderellas, despite of speaking and reading French and living just 180 km South of France. But, in SW Europe, this is a very great distance! Here, everything is at hand.

Not sure if this is the right place for this, as all the cinderellas shown here are much older.

I have this small sheet of modern french cinderellas (?) from the Musée d'Orsay, Paris. I did try google sometime ago for information, and tried again just now. Nothing came up.

Thanks Bob.
I'll submit it for consideration.
I think the Kiwis (New Zealanders) will be fascinated.

Perhaps an advertising promotion.
Featuring faces from famous artworks...I think I recognise 4 of them.
