These two pretty color engravings come from the journal ‘’Costumes Parisiens’’,one of the first French illustrated fashion magazine,created in 1797 by the bookseller Sellèque under name of ‘’ Journal des Dames'',and disappeared in 1839.
These, nicely framed together,are dated 1818 in the upper left corner.
The first,numbered (1731) represents an elegant your man,holding cane and top hat in hand.
His outfit is described as :
‘’ Habit Olive.Gilet de Dessous en Moiré à Schall et Remplis ‘’
A very sophisticated description. I particularly love his shoes !
The engraving is in overall good condition,just note that the paper is very slightly crumpled and yellowed with some freckles in places,normal for the age,more than two hundred years .
The second engraving ,numbered (1754),represents a pretty young lady,wearing long green gloves,her hat hanging on her wrist.
She wears the hairstyle in vogue at the time.
The description of her outfit is a little hard to read because it is written in old French !
‘’ Canezou de Moufseline.Robe de Perkale plus Courte que le Defsous’’
The paper shows also some freckles and a fold in the middle.
The engravings are surrounded by a light brown cardboard with a watercolor frieze enhanced with gilded paper.
The frame is in gilded stucco wood,with some little lacks on the edges. Of course the framing is much more recent than the engravings,I think it dates from the 1930s.
Dimensions : 11,4’’ x 13,8’’ framed (28,8cm x 35cm)
9,8’’ x 12,2’’ sight (25cm x 31cm)
7’’ x 4’’ the engravings (17cm x 10cm)
