Antique French Fashion Plates

I decided to scan some of my old French fashion plates and engravings. They are just so delightful, with the attention to detail and hand painting. I look forward to the day when I can frame them and get them up on the wall of my studio – the studio I am yet to own but will one day <sigh>.

Another set of images I have is some scenes of life in the time of Louis XVI. Because these engravings are about 200 years old they show some signs of age, which I love as it enhances that sense of antiquity.
