This is the ultimate fashion print from the mid 19th Century, circa 1860!
The print is English, and it shows an incredible collection of Italian Renaissance dresses, from the XVth to XVIth Centuries, with sumptuous fabrics, motifs and colors.
The piece is quite large for the time, and has been printed on thick paper, close to card, which has ensured its survival to this day.
Colors are intact, with no fading, and I believe the piece was kept away from daylight all along.
Most dresses come from royal paintings and aristocratic portraits which explains the breathtaking level of sophistication of these garments!
A totally unique piece, which will bring prestige and beauty to any decor.
CONDITION: In very good condition, with no damage and no foxing. Left edge is cut a bit slant way, but this would have no impact on framing.
MEASUREMENTS: Length: 11 3/4". Width: 8 3/4".
( 30 cm) by ( 22.5 cm)
Please check out my collection of Louis XV French dresses from a similar German series, ( 1969pnt ) as the 2 can make a glorious pair.
