Title   Manuscript metamorphic cut-out costume and headress overlays

Binding   NA

Book Condition   Very Good

Seller ID   006089

N.d., early nineteenth century. Origin unknown -- possibly French or French Swiss, or from Savoy, based on the mix of French and Italian. One base sheet and six overlays, all richly colored and drawn with exactitude. Costumes are captions Swiss, Maiorca, Salamancan, Albanian, Parisian, and Parga (Greek). All the overlays have cut-outs for the face, and these were done with great care, so that the overlays mesh seamlessly with the face of the bottom sheet. While not a large number of overlays on offer, the quality of artistry is of the highest calibre in our view. Dimensions of the sheets are 15 by 11.5 cm. Condition: light scattered soiling.

Price = 500.00 USD
