Condition: See description

Group of 50 assorted antique wall stencils, most with botanical motifs, other designs include Art Nouveau and Art Deco abstract and geometric patterns, figures, animals, and insects, most consisting of a cut-out metallic card stock stencil with handmade paper backing sheet, 13 blindstamped "LEFRANC PARIS" in the corner. Some with numbered sticker to one corner. Various sizes, sheets ranging from 3 1/8" x 4" to 19" x 25". Housed in archival box, contents loose as issued, Paris n.d. (ca. 1900-1920). The Lefranc art supply company was founded in Paris in the first quarter of the 18th century. They were behind such innovations as oil paints in tightly sealed tubes, and new chemical formulas for paint colors including a Naples yellow which prompted the company to receive a thank-you letter from the artist Jean-François Millet. In 1965 the Lefranc firm merged with Joseph Bourgeois, a competing paint seller in Paris, and Lefranc & Bourgeois is still in business today and is still well-known for the quality of its paints.
