Costumes Parisien 1823, 19th century fashionista’s 

These original steel engravings are from the French Fashion Magazine “Costumes Parisien”. They give a wonderful outlook on the history of European 19th century fashion.

This set of three steel engravings looks very good and fresh, with soft, hand-colored details. The number of these three are:

plate no. 2174, from 1823,
plate no. 2436 from 1826
plate no. 3130 from 1833.

They are framed behind a white matte and glass plate. The youngest of the three plates has some foxing spots but in general they are in very good condition. The oldest two engravings have noticeable etching plate marks around the corners that tells us that these plates are genuine. All plates have their full margins and are untrimmed. One of the plates in signed verso with a monogram. One of the glass plates has an almost unnoticeable little chip missing in the corner.

This fashionable trio can also be shipped without the glass plates and hanging garments, which would make shipping cheaper. Please let me know in advance if you want this option and i’ll calculate the accurate shipping fee.

These framed engravings can be purchased for 74.95 Euro ( in all currencies) exclusive of shipping costs directly via this link on Etsy:  These Prints on Etsy

Journal des Demoiselles

 Journal des Demoiselles, for the 19th century fashionista’s 

Two lovely original 19th century fashion prints from the Amsterdam Bruxelles Desterbecq editions, rare.

For the history lovers: How woman have come a long way since the “Journal des Demoiselles” and other fashion magazines like this one. Before these magazines issued, woman weren’t expected to read.  These Fashion magazines, with lots of pictures, came out and gradually became the first socially approved “reading” material for ladies. Fashion was an agreeable topic in higher social circles which made these magazines a stepping stone in aiding the literariness of woman.

Both copper engravings are cleaned and are de- acidified for the purpose of conservation. Both plates are in very good, bright condition. The gravures have been sun-bleached to treat and visually improve the plates and lessen the foxing spots.
The oldest original gravure depicts a woman and two children dressed in a Harlequin themed outfit. Maybe these where outfits for a play or for the yearly Parisian fashion fair. The plate is dated: Janvier 1861. No 1.
The second original gravure is dated: Fevier 1866 no 2.
On this plate we see several bonnets and hair guirlandes and some matching other fashions items.
Both plates are mounted on acid free museum board and are framed in gold-colored frames. The frames where made around 1920-1930 and have a new piece of glass. The stylish and valuable plates are ready to decorate your wall. Feel free to ask me any questions you might have about this item, I’ll be happy to answer.

Regards, Jo
