Oh my word: Dozens of vintage laminate samples from five companies in France. Formica is the big name, but we also get to see designs from Celamine, Dilophane, Permalux, Plattan Perstorp (or is it Perstorp Plattan?), and Polyrey. Ebay seller rclark8449 generously gave me permission to grab the photos for our historical archive. He told me:
I found these in a French village Vide Grenier they came from a hardware store so the vender told me.
All the best, Richard
SO FANTASTIC to see designs that, I presume, were designed and sold only in Europe. We want we want we want more designs like these back in the marketplace today!
The listings ended Sunday, and only one chain of samples seems to have sold.
Following are some of the overview shots… then, scroll down to the Gallery to see some closeups of these delicious designs.
