About the poster: Fromage Rouy d'Or is a cow’s milk cheese created in Burgundy, France. It’s a soft cheese with an orange coloured rind which gave the cheese its name of 'or' which is French for 'gold'. This vintage label was originally created as a blotter, which is a sheet or pad of blotting paper inserted into a frame and kept on a desk to be used to absorb ink or oil from writing materials, particularly when quill or fountain pens were popular. 

While the bulk of our poster collection consists of full size posters, we consider such smaller, more affordable gems to be worthy of collection as well. We think these pieces would look great in an office, a living room , country home, or any space in which a small dash of retro style is needed or desired. They are affordable, sweet, vintage ... What more could you ask for?
