Art Deco French Sheet music

I was drooling when I found a small box full of the most amazing sheet music from the 1920s and 30s at a little vide greniers in France. I had to haggle a lot but that is half the fun of going to a vide greniers of course. I spend ages and ages carefully going through all the sheets when I got back to England. Here are just a few photos -
Isn't the deep blue music sheet amazing?

Some are huge sheets with a selection of different songs, folded a few times so that the main picture becomes the cover, others are single sheets, some are even hand written. I am offering 5 pieces of Art Deco music, combination of folded and singles, all different of course and my choice. If there is a particular one you are after let me know, and I'll try to sort it out.
5 pieces £10.50 including postage worldwide

Oh, I love your old sheet music. I almost feel like I've seen some of it before in my grandmother's old home.
Thanks for your visit today.
I'll be back!
