Cycles Gladiator Poster Bargain

Happy Monday!!! Regular readers of our blog know that Mr. Autumn and I love a good bicycle ride – especially in another country.

So when I saw this reproduction of a French cycling poster in a consignment shop, I grabbed it.

And check out the price.  It was reduced……..to just $14.00.  I knew I could move some things around and put it to use.

I simply added some black paint to the worn frame and then hung it in our sunroom.

 These two on the bikes (excuse the glass glare) are being chased by a policeman.  Plus, her blouse is undone.  Hmmmm…..It must be an inside joke.  The two bicycles made it a must-have for me.  (I thought they were being chased by a pirate until a nice reader told me it was a policeman).

Plus, it looks great between our two sets of French doors.  This room has a glass ceiling and gets LOTS of light.  Good artwork just can’t go in there.  So, my $14.00 purchase will be perfect.

    I think the gentleman chasing them is police/military, His uniform is similar to the 1st Empire (Napoleonic) in France. The hat and sword are similar in style to Le Personnel des Douanes. In any event, the poster is cute and is perfect for two cycling and travel enthusiasts. Awesome price too.

    This ‘fits’ in so many ways. I love it when I find something that is perfect for a particular spot and meaningful to us too.

    I love it…what a terrific find..I love finding unique things that have some meaning in our lives…It is perfect for you….and at that price “you practically stole it”…so that’s why the police are on the chase!
