We are pleased to offer for your buying consideration an EXQUISITE RARE ANTIQUE MINIATURE HAND TINTED FRENCH LITHOGRAPH DOLLHOUSE PICTURE!
This VERY EARLY miniature print has a fabulous FASHION LADY subject matter, making it the PERFECT ACCESSORY item for display with your most PAMPERED of POUPEES, or showcased in a VIGNETTE or dollhouse LIVING ROOM!
The picture measures a DIMINUTIVE 2 3/4" tall by 1 7/8" wide, with the interior opening measuring 2 3/8" tall by 1 3/8" wide, and the wonderful ladies in the print measuring about 1 1/4" high, and has a wonderful FANCY FRAME made of BEADED ORMOLU, and it's original GLASS! The picture itself is a tiny French LITHOGRAPH PORTRAIT of two lovely Fashion ladies circa 1860's, and their dresses are HAND TINTED in beautiful vibrant colors of red and green with subtly BLUSHED CHEEKS; one of the ladies even has a red hair ribbon and GOLD BRACELETS! We think the color theme would render a fabulous CHRISTMAS MOTIF for a Fashion doll's parlor or room box vignette!
The name of the print is "LA LETTRE" (The Letter) and depicts one of the ladies secretively handing a letter to the other. If we were to imagine a story behind this lovely print, it would be that these two Mademoiselles are best friends, and one of them has a lover that her Father does not approve of, so her friend smuggles in his love letters! The print has WONDERFUL DETAILING and an old CARDBOARD BACKING; you will need to add a loop for easy hanging in your DOLLHOUSE or ROOM BOX vignette!
We think this FABULOUS subject matter would be perfect displayed with small FRENCH FASHION dolls, so we our showing this tiny picture with our 13" Poupee doll for scale purposes, so you could see how your WEE ONES would look displayed with this TINY TREASURE!
This EXQUISITE RARE EARLY ANTIQUE MINIATURE HAND TINTED FRENCH LITHOGRAPH FASHION LADY DOLLHOUSE PICTURE is being offered for the first time on Ruby Lane for your buying consideration-------an ENCHANTING ACCESSORY for your dollhouse or antique doll!
