The Papillon - Societe Francaise Bicycles




The bride has had second thoughts, and makes her speedy getaway (down stairs, no less) on a trusty Papillon bicycle whilst the poor old groom and wedding guests are left remonstrating wildly in the background.. A delicate, wild beauty in flight, just like the pretty butterflies accompanying her .. which her reliable steed is named after..

A classic French poster.. and a great conversation piece.
