Turkish Man & Woman Ottoman Empire fashion 1719 Mallet ethnic view costume printBrian DiMambro- Antiquarian Books, Maps & Prints
(Ethnic View, Costume Print, Ottoman Empire, Turkish Man, Turkish Woman).
Issued 1719, Frankfurt, for A.M. Mallet.
Charming 18th century copper engraved view with lovely hand color.
The image has a near folk-art feel, a style unique to this historical era. Utterly unlike anything produced today and of modern aesthetic appeal for this reason.
Mostly clean and well preserved example, the image displays a pleasing age patina.
Sheet measures c. 7 7/8" H x 5 7/8" W.
Printed area measures c. 5 1/2" H x 4" W.
