Lot Details

Lot 3019
[ART DECO] Le Bon Ton d'apres-guerre. Art-Modes-Frivolites.
Paris: Dorbon-Aine, n.d. (1920-1922). 2 volumes, original publisher's marbled boards with paste labels on the upper cover. Title-leaf in each volume, followed by 98 colored plates in the first and 97 (one double-page) in the second volume, for a total of 195. Though 200 plates are called for on the title-page, this hastily-assembled collection frequently contains fewer. The spines are cracked, separating and are otherwise worn, but the contents are generally clean.
A remarkable collection of plates, most colored in pochoir (i.e. hand coloring by stencil), from one of the greatest of high-fashion journals, with contributions by Georges Barbier, Charles Martin, Pierre Brissaud, &c.

Estimate: $2,000 - $3,000
Sold for $5,937 (includes buyer's premium)
