Welcome to Whispering City RVA!


– Antique Morning Dress for May, 1800 – Lady’s Monthly Museum – Regency Fashion Plate Hand Colored Copper Plate Engraving
– Approx. 6 1/2” long x 4 1/8” wide
– Age: 1800


– Antique item in good condition that shows signs of age, use and storage indicative of age.
– A lovely print that has a few condition issues including a full tear on the upper left hand corner that has been held in place by mounting and clear tape on the back of the page. Both upper corners on the page back have mounting tape on them, and the right hand corner has both mounting and clear tape present. On the front: the left hand edge shows some creasing along with the rough edge from binding removal. Pencil mark residue on the upper right hand corner where someone wrote the date 1800 in pencil and then erased it at some point.
– This has been aggressively trimmed on the bottom so that the trimming is right up against the wording “Morning Dress for May, 1800” – the flourishes of the cursive that would stretch below the page are cut off. There are some yellowing spots present on the bottom left. The fashion image itself is in excellent condition otherwise. The plate mark can be viewed along the top edge only due to trimming. Priced with these condition issues in mind.
– A very nice hand colored copper plate engraving that is 222 years old at the time of this listing (Sept 2022).
– Frame this properly and promptly to prevent condition loss.
– Note that I have added a whisperingcityrva.com watermark to the scan image in order to prevent bootlegging of the listing image.
– This unframed artwork ships safely, protected by archival backing boards inside an archival print slip cover bag, packaged in a sturdy document envelope.
– Ready to display
– Please inspect the scan image closely

Thank you!
