Details: Pair of antique French hand colored etchings in very old, brown wooden frames with black bevelled trim and distressed gold gilt interior trim with original antique glass. The pieces have an inscription on the bottom that reads "XIV & XVI Cahier de Fleurs - Dessinés par Carle et Gravés par Roubillac", which translates to "14th & 16th Notebook of Vases and Flowers -Drawn by Carle and Engraved by Roubillac". Both are also inscribed "A Paris chez Mondhare et Jean rue St. Jean de Baptiste No. 4", which was where the studies were done and translates to "In Paris at Mondhare and Jean Street St. Jean Baptiste No. 4". Can be sold without the frames to reduce the cost of shipping- please inquire.
