This box of large individual peel-and-stick stickers is perfect for scrapbooking, decoupage, gift wrapping, and, of course, adorning old trunks and luggage! The Riviera, or Côte d'Azur in French, is that sun-dappled section of the Mediterranean coastline from Toulon, France, through Monaco to the Italian Gulf of Genoa. It has long been a world-renowned vacation destination, and the historic labels reproduced here depict the sea and the sun and evoke luxury. Glamorous destinations include Cap d'Antibes, Nice, Cannes, Liguria, and Monte Carlo. See all our Boxed Sticker Sets!

Luggage labels were initially adhesive tags affixed to a traveler's luggage for identification purposes, but over time, they evolved into souvenirs representing travel destinations. Typically issued by hotels, airlines, railways, and cruise companies, they gained popularity during the mid-19th century to the early 20th century, the Golden Age of Travel. This era saw the rise of mass tourism and the expansion of transportation networks, including railroads, ocean liners, and, eventually, air travel. Beyond their practical function, luggage labels served as advertisements featuring elaborate designs crafted by renowned artists, transforming them into miniature art pieces. Although their utilitarian role has waned, they remain prized ephemeral collectibles today!
