Originally issued as a supplement to an early French fashion magazine..'La Femme Chic'..this lovely large Vintage Poster is an Athena Edwardian Revival.
Printed in London in 1976 using the same printing method as the Edwardian original and not the dot matrix system, it offers the opportunity to acquire a beautiful copy of an Antique poster at a fraction of the price of an original.
It features a lovely Edwardian lady in the height of 1910 fashion with a stunning large hat made of peacock feathers and fur. Her gown is of embroidered deep turquoise velvet and lace, with a matching cape to adorn her shoulders. She is seated on a Regency stripe carved couch and the entire picture is in varying and beautiful shades of aqua, brown, white, pale peach and beige.
It is a fashion supplement to the French high fashion magazine 'La Femme Chic'...numbered 12 Pl. 20... and it is signed by the artist Souche.
Originally printed by J Bas of Paris it showcases fashion created by the famous French couturiers Martial et Armand and entitled 'Toilette d'Apres-Midi'.
Measuring 23 1/2" x 34" it has some damage bottom left corner and a small tear upper right corner. As well as some general edge creasing. All consistent with the age and extreme rarity of the poster. These will 'frame out'
I have been collecting Antique and Vintage posters for more than 50 years and have never seen this one anywhere else.
