Vanity Fair was a British weekly magazine published from 1868 to 1914. Founded by Thomas Gibson Bowles, it offered its readership articles on fashion, current events, the theatre, books, social events and the latest scandals. A full-page, color lithograph of a contemporary celebrity or dignitary appeared in most issues, and it is for these caricatures that Vanity Fair is best known today.
Print measures approximately 10 1/2" x 15 1/5". It is in good condition with tape burn in the upper margin and small chips/tears along the edges of the margins. All will completely cover when matted and framed nicely.
A wonderful selection of antique silver, prints, unique collectibles and decorative accessories
