This an original 1922 pochoir print of women's clothing from the Greco-Roman period of history. Please note that several of the illustrations of these elegant costumes have applied gilt (figs. 3, 5 and 9) which appears black in our digital image.
Period Paper has obtained a beautiful collection of original pochoir prints of historical costumes from around the world. This rare collection was printed by zincography, a printing process of engraving or etching on zinc plates, and colored in pochoir, a process of hand painting using stencils, or pochoirs, on each image. This painstaking process captures the smallest detail of each costume, making this an extraordinary artistic as well as historic collection of costume images.
This 89+ year old Item is rated Very Fine +. No creases. No natural defects. No tears. No water damage. There is some light aging in the margins and some very light surface rub--please see image.
