Lovely pair of antique French engravings on laid paper entitled Les Confidences and Le Boudoir after works by the Swiss artist Sigismond Freudenberger (1745-1802).

Text below the images read as follows:
Iris, dans le portrait que lui montre Julie,
Voit d'un amant cheri toute la perfidie:
Gardez vos jeunes coeurs de telle confidence,
Songez que le plaisir n'est qu'une douce erreur.
L'illusion fait seule & bonheur & constance.
Amis, amans tout est trompeur.

Le talent heureux d'endormir.
