I wanted to share this wonderful flea market find with you for Easter today. This large, hand colored antique French print is celebrating love in the spring garden. Titled: Le Printems
Two young ladies and a male suitor are standing in a brightly colored cutting garden. A beautiful fountain and the soft green spring woods are just behind them.
The colors are as soft and romantic as the scene itself. Take in the fashions, the garden tools, the statuary figures at the top of the fountain and even the basket full of flowers. In this print, the beauty is all in the details. I fell in love with those details and had to have this print.
I have found several different translations of the caption so I will not pretend to know exactly what is printed. However, I do believe there is reference to the fragile gifts of spring and the beauty gathered by the hands that I adore. Simply lovely. If you happen to know what it really says please let me know.
I will be back on the treasure hunt next week, until then- Happy Hunting!
Happy Easter and joyous Spring wishes to everyone, enjoy your day.
