Beautiful Antique Hand Painted French Fabric Design
When I purchased ta batch of designs, there were some torn fragments along with the complete designs, here are some of them:
This is 2 beautiful partial pieces of original late 19th century French hand painted gouache designs or cartoons on heavy paper. they are undated but stylistically dates to the late 1890s, They came from Lyon, a super hand painted 19th century design for reference, they could be useful for small projects, framing or reference.
They measure about 10" by 9.5" or 25.5 cm by 24 cm and 10.75" by 8.75"/27.5 cm by 22 cm. This was a working design, so there may be some signs of wear & tear commensurate with age & use, with possibly some creases, tears, patination, marks, please see photos for individual condition.
