Original, beautifully detailed and coloured antique double page chromolithograph showing traditional Finnish, Swedish, Norvegian, Dutch, Russian, Bavarian, Pomeranian costumes.

National costume, folk dress or traditional garments, expresses an identity through costume which usually relates to a geographic area or a period of time in history, but can also indicate social, marital and/or religious status. Such costumes often come in two forms: one for everyday occasions, the other for festivals and formal wear. Following the outbreak of romantic nationalism, the peasantry of Europe came toserve as models for all that appeared genuine and desirable. Their dress crystallised into so-called "typical" forms, and enthusiasts adopted it as part of their symbolism.

The size of the print: 12" x 9,6" (30,5 x 24,5 cm) including its border.
Published in 1897, Germany, as an illustration for "Meyers' Konversations Lexikon".

The print is in good condition and the paper shows its age with a creamy patina, perfect for framing.

Concerning the age of the paper - cca. 115 years - some spots can be occured on the margin and the reverse side, but these do not effect the quality of the lithograph itself as it can be seen on the scan.

Please note, that by antique prints due to their age some imperfections are to be expected.
