Authentic Antique Fashion Plate
Hand watercolored 1841
From the Pat Stall Collection
Years ago when my old friend Pat Stall was ill, I stopped to visit with her, and she offered to sell me her antique fashion plate collection. I bought all her loose plates, those that were unbound as in the garage full of bound fashion magazines she had. Oh boy, was that a collection to get lost it!
I picked a few pieces to sell to help fund the sale. This is one of those prints recently found in my storage. It's two lovely ladies in their ante-bellum gowns. It's from the French fashion magazine called Gazette De Femmes.
The print is in a double mat, outside dimensions 11" x 14". The antique pink colored exterior mat has a unique bow cut-out which peeks through to the ivory under-mat. The note at the bottom is just slipped in behind the shrink-wrap...not stuck to the mat.
I have only this one to sell.
