Les Fashionables Greeting Card for Fashion Victims!

An Antique Images Greeting Card: Les Fashionables was a term borrowed from English and used in France circa 1830 to describe the Fashion Victims of the day. In this card, a dolled up family, is shown as a group of dolls! This marvelous caricature of a fashionable French family is based on a 19th Century Lithograph by Charles Philipon. Philipon was an illustrator and businessman and one of the founders of the newsletter La Silhouette from which this image comes. La Silhouette was the the first French newspaper to regularly publish prints and illustrations, giving them equal or greater importance than the written text. Background color can be customized!
