On offer is a lovely antique fashion page, from “Modes de Paris” French fashion magazine. The series title is “Petit Courrier des Dames”. This is an original hand-colored etching, line and stipple engraving c. February 10, 1841.
***Please note that this is an authentic, antique fashion magazine page, not a modern digital reproduction. This page is 178 years old!
Condition is very good, with age-related toning. There is some dog-ear creasing on the top left of the page, along with other creases and small blemishes and/or imperfections. There is a very light (and wonderful!) scent that is common of aging paper. The reverse side is blank with some small tape marks on the back upper corners and a slight rough patch in the wove paper on the back also, neither of which are visible from the front. I have included direct image scans. Please examine closely for condition and note that there may be a variation in the overall paper color of the print to account for slight variations in monitors, scanners, etc.
This print ships to you unframed and protected with archival backing board and bag.
The publication date, “10 Fevrier 1841”, appears on the bottom left of the image, with the publisher name and address is located on the bottom right of the page, listed as “S. & J. Fuller, 34 Rathbone Place, London.
Two lovely ladies in French fashions of the day! Measures 8 7/8″ tall by 5 13/16” wide.
