Pariser Moden – Haughty Gentleman in a Tophat and Shy Woman in a Blue Cape

Pariser Moden

Published in Ulm, Germany from 1839 to 1848

Each approximately 6.25 X 9.5 inches

Pariser Moden was one of the earliest German fashion magazines. Each fashion plate in the magazine showed the interaction, often a flirtation, of a couple. The attitudes reveal much about the relationship between the sexes during the late Biedermeier period. A set of four or six of these would be a great decor touch in a hallway, bedroom dressing room, or bath.

An elegant and rather haughty looking gentleman with sideburns poses in his brown vest and blue ascot while his wife stands demurely to one side in a blue cape.

This sheet has considerable spotting and staining as shown.
