About this Item

A set of nine hand-drawn and aquatinted costumes, each matted separately, with a delicately featured lady's head that transfers between the costumes by fitting into a slot at the neck. The costumes include a riding habit flowing down the side of a horse, outdoor wear, and dresses in which the wearer is holding a fan, a book, or pages of music. Five of the matted costumes have been hinged together. One sheet has a repair patch and two closed tears not affecting the image, another has one small closed tear not affecting the image, and a few sheets show light soiling. Altogether a lovely set showing a variety of English ladies' costumes and activities. (Seven of the cards measure 9 by 11 inches [23x28cm]; the other two are 10 3/8 by 11 inches [26x28cm]).
