Summary
Women's fashions of the 1880s and 1890s, as seen in fashion plates issued by New York based publishers. All except one print depict single figures, sometimes with details. Five prints (on three sheets) captioned L'art de la mode, nos. 741, 838, 841, 1098, 1101, were published by the Morse-Broughton Co. Three prints were published by Toilettes Publishing Company, two in November 1895, and one in March 1896. A print of a bridal gown, captioned The French Dressmakers, was published by MacDowell and Co. and is signed by Marie Perinal [?]. Two adult women and a young girl are shown in a reproduction of a print signed by Oswald Levens [?] in 1888, and captioned La mode de Paris, published by A. McDowell and Co.
