Pariser Moden Fashion Plate – Lady in Pink and Handsome Gentleman in a Brown Vest

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.

A lady in a pink dress adorned with white roses sits demurely to one side while her gentleman suitor appears to be making a point.  Dated February 20, 1848.
