Description
 
A 1 1/4" x 3 7/8" heavy card stock souvenir ticket from Balances des Grands Magasins du Louvre, Paris. The front depicts a cherub holding up a banner reading "Souvenir Des Grands Magasins du Louvre".  The background is an ornately contrived fantasyland filled with toys. Ch Van Der Daele sc. The reverse has a grid of weights.  The card was apparently inserted into the scale before weighing resulting in the scale embossing your weight in the card.   Light surface soiling.. Just what I want as a souvenir from my trip to Paris- a card that tells me how much I weigh...
