Vintage B and S NY print of Sophie de France. Vivid colors beautifully matted in linen and encased behind glass in  a black speckled gold accented wood frame. I usually don’t purchase prints, but it and the companion piece of her sister, Victories (listed separately) were just too amazing to pass up.

⚜️ A little history of Madame Victoire follows below⚜️

I acquired it from the estate of a former lobbyist for the state of Texas where the two pieces hung in her entry. They may have been the first things I saw, and I quickly marked them sold! This estate is so massive it will be sold in 3 parts. I am counting the days until sale #2, lol.

Sourcing the South and the great state of Texas for vintage and antique estate decor is my favorite thing to do...shopping estate sales, auctions, and charity thrift stores to carefully curate a collection of fantastic finds that have and will stand the test of time.

It measures 19.25” tall x 16.25” wide framed.

🩷As with most vintage and antique pieces, there is light wear associated with years of age and use which only only adds to their charm. Please see all the pics as they are considered part of the description.

A little history on Madame Sophie:

Sophie Philippine Élisabeth Justine was born on 27 July 1734 in France. She was the eighth child and sixth daughter of King Louis XV of France and his wife, Maria Leszczyńska who was nicknamed "The Good Queen". 

 In June 1738, sent to live at the Abbey of Fontevraud with her elder sister Madame Victoire until returning in 1750. 

Like her sister, Victorie, Madame Sophie never married.

In 1777, Sophie was given the title of Duchess of Louvois by their nephew, the king.

After her death in 1782, she was buried in the royal tomb at the Royal Basilica of Saint Denis, which was plundered and destroyed at the time of the French Revolution.

Her great-niece, Sophie Beatrix, youngest daughter of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette, was named after her.
