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.  Each is a hand colored lithograph.

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.
