Fashion plate, from La Belle Assembleé

This hand-coloured fashion plate is from La Belle Assembleé, a ladies' monthly magazine published in London. The plate illustrates a winter carriage dress and appeared in issue no 107 on 1 February, 1818.

The text at the foot of the plate reads, 'Invented by Mrs Thomas, Wellington House'.

After the first nine months of publication, La Belle Assembleé was issued in two forms - one with monochrome plates costing half-a-crown and one with colour plates costing a shilling extra. The magazine was in circulation from 1806 until 1869.
