Victorian Fashion Illustration from Peterson's Magazine December 1860


A fashion illustration in full colour from my collection of Peterson's Magazine, December 1860 issue. The image shows five ladies in a variety of dresses, ranging from the everyday to fancy ball gowns. There is also a girl who is kneeling on the carpet trying to hush a little white puppy. Some subtle grunge, a little bit of discolouration, a few creases all add character and age to this antique book plate. You can download the high-res 8.5" x 11 @ 300 ppi JPEG without a watermark for scrapbooking, crafts, collage or graphic design projects here.
