The first time I came across La Belle Epoque, I swooned. No joke. My case of the vapors was provoked by combination of things. First and foremost it was caused by their glorious selection of authentic vintage advertizing posters. Second was the price tags of said posters. A 47″ x 63″ Mossant, circa 1938 will run you between 1,600 and 3,000 bucks–and that’s not even on the high end of their pricing scale.
Now, I would love nothing better to include images from their site, but the web gods have forbidden it. Let’s just say, their on-line catalog includes 22 categories, including fashion, literary, decorative and exhibitions, to name just a few.
So, go ahead and have some fun window shopping at La Belle Epoque. And, then, after that, head on over to All-Posters and check out their Vintage Art selection where you can find a 36″ x 54″ giclee print replica of the Mossant mentioned above for a whopping $159.99 (or a 24″ x 36″ print for $17.99).
