What we are looking at is a an old Swedish table cloth. I guess from the early 50's, maybe from the mid 50's.
It's a hommage to all two-wheelers on the Swedish roads. In the corners there are drawings of a couple on bicycles, a couple on mopeds, one guy on a small motorcycle and, of course, a lady on a Vespa. And on a Vespa that looks like a cross between a Vespa 98 and a Douglas Vespa, due to the headlamp on the front shield.
In the center there are traffic signs and names/logos of different two-wheel brands. Among them Lambretta, Vespa and Svalan, in the scooter field.
When I saw it I immediately thought of the Vespa 46, Quarantasei, the concept Vespa of the 2011 EICMA show in Milan. Will they build it? Rumours talk about a launch in december 2012.
Well, some lucky guy in Sweden has a nice table cloth, unfortunately it's not me!
|I think it definitely looks like a 1946-1947 Vespa 98 cc.|
