They are fabulous!
Printed circa 1925 in "L'ILLUSTRATION" a luxury French magazine, with the picture on top showing Erte's signature in the plate, they are rare and delightful Erte's creations.
Very likely offsets of the original lithographs, they are fresh, with the most vibrant colors, and for the 2 characters kissing in the lower picture, a strong silver effect.
The sheet is large for the time: 14 2/8 by 10 1/2 and is a fairly thick paper.
The titles for the pieces are awesome:
"Le bracelet", "la premiere parure de Venus" (Venus' first outfit), "l'oiseau enchante" (the enchanted bird)
As a suggestion:
In the second pic, I have shown them in what could be the best presentation for them, while keeping the sheet intact:
A dark gray mat that would have 2 cutouts following the shape of the 2 pictures.
A simple black baguette frame would be perfect with such a mat. Both fairly inexpensive.
The picture at the back is also an excellent Erte piece, also larger. You may decide to chose this one for framing.
In that case, the gray mat with its cutout would look like the simulation pic.
In very good condition. No damage or fading.
