French Prints

My love isn't just for Vintage furniture, I have this love for these prints/paintings as well.
I have two in my home now, but they are only 8x10 I would love to come across large ones.

As I am fascinated with Old Furniture always wondering where it has been, who has sat in it what the story is behind each piece, I believe these prints are quite the same.

Some are Historical , but some are not, And as I do with furniture, I wonder what the story is behind each one.

There is something classic about each one

Many I have found are dated back to the 1700-early 1900,s, and many are of the French.

Maybe that is Why I love them so much, they remind me of the Classic French Style..

  2. I just purchased two ginormous portraits of Marie Antoinette and Louis XIV on Craigslist. They are each six feet tall and four feet wide. I have no idea WHY I bought them, actually! They were just cool, I suppose! LOL! Well, now I have them!

  5. Hi, just came across your blog. I think that the handsome young man in the first picture is Bonnie Prince Charlie who led the Jacobite rebellion in 1745. A Scottish hero. Liz
