Naughty French Pop-up Card -- April Fools Day

Premier Avril. Quand tu retires ton jupon, Je te trouve deja jolie; mais otes donc ton pantalon, Et je t'aimerai a la folie.

France: c.1890. A cheeky April Fools Day card die-cut to resemble a skirt that, when opened, reveals a fold-out pop-up of a woman in her undergarments. The printed message inside reads (loosely translated): "First of April. When you take off your petticoat, I already find you pretty; but take off your pants, and I will love you madly!"

Embossed chromolithographed die-cut card measuring approx. 4.25" by 3.5", with pop-up paper mechanism inside. Very good to near-fine. Minor damage to verso where previously affixed to scrap book paper. Some minor toning inside, a little surface wear to one part of internal pop-up, short tear, two minor tape repairs. Bright with colors well preserved.

Price: $125.00
