Vintage French textile hessian or grainsack printed La Poste mail sack


Shipping to United States: $21.79

A vintage sacking, hessian or burlap grainsack La Poste printed mail sack.
Probably this item dates from the last quarter of the c20th.
The sack is printed with a central brand stripe, La Poste in yellow and blue.
The interior is also printed which makes this sack reversible.
The top edge has a reinforced hem with rope inside to help keep the sack open when being filled. This area of the sack is in poor condition with rips, holes and considerable wear. A piece of twine has been added to one side to hang up the sack.
The side seams are also reinforced using the selvedge of the sacking fabric with a blue thread line.
The bottom corner has DEREN 98 printed in blue.
A good basic example of the famous and sought after La Poste mailsac. Condition is poor with holes and major wear, there are marks and holes on the main body of the sack, which I have photographed. Price reflects condition, please study photos before purchasing.
Size, approx 69 cm wide and 118 cm long.
