From Francois Courboin's 1898 'Paris Fashion Styles', here is a handsome pochoir print captioned -
'The Smart Corner of the Rue Richelieu' - The East Indian Company's warehouse  '
The pochoir depicts a woman in a fur-trimmed cloak and matching muff as she walks about the street seemingly eyed by two well-dressed men in top hats and a carriage driver in livery.
The woman is passing in front of the 'Compagnie des Indes' wearing a pink dress supported by a wide crinoline as well as a 'manteau impératrice' or an imperial coat in fur. She wears a bonnet that reveals a bit of hair around the ears, delicately embellished with ribbon. The men are wearing somber colors, while the other man wears an English riding costume.
The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 7" x 9.875" (17.8x25.1 cm), the pochoir is strong and clear, the colors are vivid, and the paper is smooth and clean, showing gentle tanning with clear edges and sharp corners. The pochoir is clean with no tears, marks, folds, or creases.
This will be a lovely image to frame for the bath or dressing room, bedroom or sewing studio ... and perfect for all your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage.
