January – ‘Months’ by J.June – 1749



 ‘Months’ by J.June and Published by Voisin


1749 - January - Months


Details include:

– She wears a wide hooped petticoat – I love seeing these in action!
-Her dress is of a strong red colour – although probably if these are prints then they could get coloured whatever colour. It’s interesting to note, however, that the winter months are all strong dark colours!
– Her cape is black with fur edging. it has a yellow ribbon tying it at the front.
– She wears a fur-lined muff in a dark red and fairly small in it’s appearance.
– She also wears the compulsary Undress fashion of a long white apron.
– Her Bergere is black – again interesting and good to have an actual image of this. Although, again to be fair, these type of prints could vary in colours. It still remains though that an 18th c person coloured the hat black. She wears is it with a matching yellow ribbon, the same as the cape.

We’d also love to know what ‘According to Act Nov 25 1749’ means. Atleast, we think that’s what it says.
