LaMode Illustree Fashion Plates with Applique

This was one of the great finds during last weekend. The detailed dress-work on the maidens was done on an actual page from La Mode Illustree (one of the most famous French fashion magazines from the 1880's). The dress-work is actually newer-1930's-or early 40's as judged by the. Both are set in silk/satin shadow boxes of exceptional quality, but have wear and tear over the years.
