This is the ultimate fashion print from the early 19th Century, 1834. The print is French, and it shows such an incredible collection of French Fashion, with delicious laces, sumptuous fabrics, designs and colors. The print is quite large for the time it was lithographed, measuring 11" x 8~3/4". Printed on heavier paper, which has ensured its beautiful survival for your enjoyment today. Pages like this were sold in booklets to dressmakers in the United States for the very rich, to show their patrons the latest fashions in Paris, and to copy for their customers.

The colors were hand colored and are as bright today as when they were first created. The dresses are divine, there is a breathtaking level of sophistication in these fashion delights. This particular piece showcases Fashions for March, 1834, two Ball Gowns and one gown worn with a fur muff, each more elegant and charming than the next, in White & Blue, Emerald Green, and Pink. On the top half, the accessories that compliment each gown, hats {true millinery masterpieces!} capes and hair ornaments. All in Silk, French Laces, Ribbons and the most beautiful Feathers.

Signed by famous lithographer W. Alais, plate 7. There is aging to the paper, these were taken from the booklet so there are staple holes on one edge, some of the edges aren't cut quite straight as was usual for this time period. I have a series of these framed in gilt frames in our bedroom at home, they look spectacular! Totally delightful and quite unique, this will bring French elegance and style to any room in your beautiful home.
