A beautiful pair of Ackermann fashion prints early 19th century

$35.00 each

Code: sku 1980



These two original antique fashion prints are by the famous firm of Ackermann printers of London. They are both of superb quality and details are as follows:

Walking Dress: A lady in a rare depiction of a pelisse in grey. She is holding a pale green umbrella and has her little dog by her side.

Evening Dress: A lady wearing a very decorative dress in silk and lace. She has decorative headwear in feathers and seems to be viewing some pictures. She is sitting on a silk couch with tassels, and holding a fan. This print is delicately tinted. The dress is very pale blue and the shawl by her side is a pale brown or cream. Her face, neck and arms have a slight pink tint.

Both prints are in  very good condition to excellent  with slight patination of age on the antique cream paper.

They both measure 9 x 5 3/4" and the name of Ackermann is at the botton, although very small. They are both from a volume dated 1821

The patinatioon seems more obvious in the photos, but the paper colour is cream, and they are extremely faint in reality. These would make a nice pair framed.
