Lovely pair of antique French engravings on laid paper entitled Les Confidences and Le Boudoir after works by the Swiss artist Sigismond Freudenberger (1745-1802). The first depicts two ladies exchanging confidences and the second a lady dozing away on her day bed, with a book in her hand, while a young couple frolics outside her window.

Text below the images read as follows:

LES CONFIDENCES

Iris, dans le portrait que lui montre Julie, Voit d'un amant cheri toute la perfidie: Gardez vos jeunes coeurs de telle confidence,

Songez que le plaisir n'est qu'une douce erreur. L'illusion fait seule & bonheur & constance. Amis, amans tout est trompeur.

I.U.E. inv. S. Freudeberg del. A Paris ches Buldet rue de Gesvres. C. L. Lingee Sculp. 1774
