Symptoms of Drowsiness. Symptoms of Laziness.

This is a hand-colored print dated December 17, 1794 (click on the image to see a larger view of it).

And as for the subject matter? Since it's around midnight, I've decided Violet is drowsy and Violet has decided I'm lazy (because I can't come up with a good idea for a post) so we're calling it a night. :-)

Where do you get all this wonderful stuff?

You just have to keep looking. This print came from a local antique mall but I've found things at flea markets too AND eBay is fantastic for old prints...at least it used to be. One of my favorite dealers on eBay is panteek.

And thanks so much for the "wonderful" compliment. I really love these things and enjoy showing them off. :-)

I love all this obscure stuff you have.

Hey thanks. I have two more in this series that I still need to post. And then, onto even more obscure things. :-)
