Description

This stunning hand tinted ORIGINAL antique French fashion plate is one of a set of 10. They were rescued from a damaged 1849 leather bound book titled 'Magasin des Demoiselles' and were printed on soft card, not thin paper. Sad that the book couldn't be saved as a whole, but at least these beautiful fashion images ( and the remaining pages in ephemera packs ) will be given a new lease of life and can still be admired. Whether you are a fashion student seeking authentic illustrations or just an admirer of beautiful old fashion images, these will make delightful displays on the wall in your studio, bedroom, ladies room etc. The pages measure approx. 25.5cm by 16.5cm and are unframed so that you can display them in a way which suits your interior decor. The watermark obviously does not appear on the original 1849 illustrations. The last two photos show other fashion plates in the series. The pages are not pristine, after all they are 170 years old. You'll find foxing, uneven edges, slightly crumpled corners, so please look at the images provided.

Please let me know if you are interested in more than one, so that I can sort out a multi-buy discount for you :-).
