Beautiful matching mahogany frames! These very stunning linen paper prints were made in the 1940s depicting fashions of the 1840s - 1860s Victorian Era. The detail in the fashions depicted is just such a treat - the bonnets, bows, lots of lace, shawls, gloves, parasol, oh, and the fabrics - the detail shown in these prints is just wonderful.
The frames measure 13 1/2" X 10 1/2" , and the prints are 9 X 12. The back cardboard has a stamp that says:
#78 9X12 Mahogany Godey REQ NO A 33110 PERFECTION PICTURE FRAME CO. 89 West 3RD STREET, N.Y.C.
The condition is excellent. Inside one of the prints is a bit of dust or maybe paper particles which I did not remove as I did not want to remove the backing. The paper itself is not stained.
Godey's Lady's Book, also known as Godey's Magazine and Lady's Book, was published by Louis A. Godey in Philadelphia from 1830 to1878. It was quite expensive for the times, enjoyed 150,000 subscribers, mostly women, and well known for the hand-tinted fashion page at the start of each issue providing a record of ladies fashions of the day. Godey paid $8,000 for the hand tinting of each fashion page.
