Pariser Moden Fashion Plate – Elegant Biedermeier Flirtation

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.  Each is a hand colored lithograph.

An elegant Biedermeier period flirtation between a gentleman with a moustache in top hat and chic brown jacket and checkered pants and a beautiful woman in a white and gold robe who feigns shyness by the balustrade.
