1818 Fashion engraving
This framed original fashion engraving (number 107) was published in 1818.
The title is Qu'en dites-vous? or What do you think? It has been hand coloured and shows ladies looking at and trying on beautiful hats, shoes etc. The colours remain fresh because it has been mounted in a frame with glass.
There are a couple of tiny marks on the engraving, which can be seen in the photographs but nothing to spoil this enchanting image which is 200 years old this year! I believe the wooden frame is more recent than the engraving. The front of the frame is on good order but the back is rather time worn. There is a loop for wall mounting. Measurements: 8 1/2" by 6 1/2This would make a wonderful gift for a fashion lover or fan of Jane Austen. It ships from France.Thanks for looking!
