Celebrating 25 years of Antiquing Bliss
Antique GRANDVILLE Print Engraving Lady Flowers Morning Glory 19th C Century SIGNED Exquisite! - image 1 of 7

From the earliest Grandville edition of "Fleurs Animees" (De Gonet edition) this is an authentic 19th Century engraving, (not a reproduction) with its original hand watercolor, signed Grandville in the plate, in the lower left corner.

Literally "Night Belle" is a whimsical scene with a very interesting central character, not a typical Victorian woman wearing a long dress like in most "Fleurs Animees", but a kind of Shakespearean creature, part young boy, part young girl, part elf, with the most exquisite features.

Belle de Nuit has the tiniest feet, lovely vine like ringlets and wears a blue morning glory flower as a hat.

In the background are 2 other belles in pink.

On the side is another creature of the night, a butterfly or moth.

An exquisite piece to keep very preciously. as the original Grandville "Fleurs Animees" are disappearing fast!

(Please check my other Grandville, I currently have a lovely collection)

Length: 10 1/4". Width: 6 5/8".

(26 cm) by ( 16.75 cm)

In good condition with the usual darker edges. Little foxing in this piece, but colors are not very strong.

However, I advise leaving the original Grandville colors as they are. Retouching them can be disastrous, and also removes any value to the artworks.
The piece used to have a protective tissue, which has left a very faint line in the left margin.

There are 2 Grandville editions in the mid 19th Century, which are considered the original editions: The 1847 one by G. De Gonet, and the 1867 one by Garnier Freres.

Will be shipped from CA including online tracking, insurance and signature at delivery.
