Superb 19C Blotter Folio with Hand Painted Images
The blotter folios are consolidated in a wonderful booklet. On the cover a painting of a young couple, glued on the fine leather . The landscape around of the couple is directly painted on the leather. On the back side of the booklet a lovely nest on a branch. The booklet is fitted with fine silk too.
I think this wonderful folio belongs to a young girl. It is decorated with so fine and elegant pictures. Possible the picture of the couple depicts this young lady and her fiancé. The leather inside is fine Suede, sand color.
The blotter folios are used, I am wondering what and whom does she wrote...
Inside embossed the name of the maker: J. Weidman K.K. Hoflieferant Wien. "K.K. Hoflieferant" means that Mister Weidman was a "imperial and royal" furnisher of the Court of the Habsburgs in Austria, Vienna.
This wonderful piece was made in the late 19th Century. It is in a very good condition. Some little wear, but no crack or restoration. The paintings are fabulous and at the same time touching.
I love this kind of antique pieces. They are witness of the romantic past in our email and handy world.....
7.6 x 10.2 inches.
