Antique 1897 La Mode Illustree French Fashion Plate Family
An antique 1897 la Mode Illustree French fashion print family. The fashion journal, La Mode illustree was published in Paris beginning in 1859, and illustrated the fashions of that period. With each publication, a separate hand-colored engraved print was also sent to the subscriber. This particular print was produced in 1886 and 1897, and vividly illustrated the fashion of the era with a quality of engraving and color rarely seen in modern prints. This print has a condition issue with some toning and a indent in the print in one location. This antique print is unique as it displays a family, mother and children playing and learning lessons in their own home. The print is single matted in a blue with a hand painted french line on top. The antique print measures approx. 16-1/4" x 20-1/4" overall with an image size of approx. 9-3/4" x 13-3/4".
