the ladies of D'Arceau-Limoges

My mom has an amazing eye, and discovers treasures at her local Thrift Stores frequently. I feel like she should be on Antique Road show, she’s that good. The plate above is from D'Arceau-Limoges’ Women of the Century series, which mom rescued for a few dollars. I love the concept of showing fashions through time, but the execution of the illustrations is just not my style. There is something off about the proportions of the ladies. But I do love the orange outfit, and the attitude, of this flapper. And the typography on the front and the back is fantastic.
