Antique French Fashion Magazine Engraving 1847.
From the July 1847 edition comes this stunning early fashion plate.
In full color it ia a wonderful insight into another time.
Signed by the illustrator Jules David, it is numbered 119 and features a lady of high fashion out for La Promenade with her two equally beautifully attired young children and a very elegant collared dog. Her outfit is the height of 'La mode'. Bedecked with green ribbons.
Le Moniteur de la Mode was published at Bureaux du Journal, 43 Rue neuve Vivienne, Paris from 1843-1913 and was part of the growing number of French fashion magazines that proliferated during the second half of the Nineteenth century, due to vast improvements in printing techniques. By 1847 the magazine was also published in New York and London.
France dominated the market for fine clothes and accessories and Paris was the heart of high fashion making these magazines very influential. A trend that continues today.
Measuring 10 1/2" x 7 1/2" the condition is good, especially considering the engraving is more than 160 years old.
There is some age spotting mostly verso and in the margins, mostly top left and bottom right, and a small repaired 1/2" tear about 1" from the lower left corner, which would not be seen after framing.
I am also listing a companion engraving RP89 and they would look wonderful matted and framed either as a pair or even together.
