Very cool, vintage 1970's poster\/ paper toy of a "puss in boots" type, dapper cat! Poster was produced in southern France, in Tourrettes Sur Loup, France. Wikipedia tells me that:

"Tourrettes-sur-Loup is a commune in the Alpes-Maritimes department in southeastern France. This is an artisan's village situated near Grasse. It features medieval and romanesque buildings."

The poster features a photo of an unfinished, plush, cat in Medieval garb, including a hat and separate shoulder poufs! The intention is for you to cut out the pieces and assemble them together with brads at their joints and create your own little marionette toy! The back of the poster illustrates the cut and assemble directions clearly, despite all info. being written in French.

You will see too that above the directions on the back of the poster is a water based stain of some kind, and since it is a soft brown color my guess is coffee or tea. Luckily the stain didn't hurt the image itself on the reverse and you can still hang the poster up as you see fit!

I will mail the poster rolled up in a tube, but it unfolds nicely and can be framed of course at your discretion! Poster measures 14" inches by 19 1\/2" inches and is printed on a heavier gage card-stock than usual. This isn't a flimsy little thing, I think that is why the stain didn't bleed through to the other side.

A very unique and interesting toy poster! A great purchase!

Thanks for looking!
