Fashion plate, from Le Petit Courrier des Dames

This hand-coloured fashion plate is from a scrap album containing a selection of 19th century fashion plates. The plate is from Le Petit Courrier des Dames, a weekly fashion magazine published in Paris. Dated 31 August, 1835 it illustrates men's outdoor wear.

On the left is an outfit, or livery, for a servant. The gentleman on the right is dressed for a stroll on horseback. The plate was engraved by Damours.

Le Petit Courrier des Dames was in publication from 1822 until around 1865. An English version called, The Ladies' Little Messenger, came out in 1823 but did not last long.
