Exquisite home wall decoration

We add to our page for interior decoration and interior decorators a series of copper etchings depicting classical elements of home decor, such as vases and decanters, mirrors and oil lamps, pitchers and bowls, bits and pieces and floral decoration. Surrounded by black, blue or red backgrounds these antique prints were published by Auguste Péquegnot (1819 - 1878) in Paris from 1856 to 1863 under the title "Ornaments, Vases and Decoration d'après les maîtres, such as J. and J. Le Paute Marot, F. Boucher, Jacques Saly, Lucotte, Jules Romain, De la Fosse, Antoine Watteau, J.B. Huet, Charles Eisen" . These prints were always published in black and white. We had ours recently colored by one of our most gifted artists so that we may claim to have an absolutely unique set of a high quality standard. Imagine these prints framed, setting accents and highlights in your home. What a joy to look at!
