Size: Frame 51 x 45 cm, picture inside frame 26 x 33 cm (10 x 13 inches) approx. Condition: Very good antique condition, frames refurbished with new acrylic glazing, general toning to print paper and slight ageing to textiles. This is a charming, striking and unusual picture, in its original box frame, made from a print from the fashion magazine La Mode Illustreé, dated 1875 (Issue No 4). The print has been enhanced by using actual textiles to create the dresses of the principal ladies shown in the print. A complex variety of fabrics, lace borders etc has been used, and some parts of the prints such as hands have been cut out and re-attached to the figures. This particular print is advertising the "toilettes de Me.Fladry 43 Rue Richer". Below this (under the frame) it states that it also shows the "coiffures de Mr. Boutin, Rue de 4 Septembre", and also, in English "The above costumes may be had in LONDON of AUGUSTUS AHLBORN, Quadrant House, 74 Regent Street, and 7 & 9 Ayr Street W." The print was printed in Paris and is signed in the print by Adele-Anaïs Colin Toudouze (1822 – 1899), a celebrated fashion plate illustrator born in the Ukraine, who did a great deal of work for La Mode Illustreé. It is also signed Reville, perhaps the designer William Reville, although his famous fashion house was not founded until 1906. I have two other similar pictures in matching frames, from an original set of three, for sale (see my other items).
