Fashion card history 1655-1750

These cards can be found in vintage paper shows as well as some new gift shops; I found quite a few last year at a French bookstore right in the heart of Rockefeller Center. I think they were part of an encyclopedia, but I'm not certain. They are lovely little cards, nicely drawn with delicate washes of watercolor that are still bright. Left click for a close-up.
