Original Designs on Paper

This is what I believe to be an original template on paper that the porcelain painters did in watercolors before actually painting these on porcelain. It would date to the 18th century but I am no expert on paper. It is most likely a Frankenthal example but could be Nymphenburg or Ludwigsburg as well. There are two scenes of a deer in a nice landscape and buildings background. One on top and one in the center with the bottom being blank. Would probably be best to cut them apart to have them framed for display but I couldn't bring myself to do it so far :) The paper is not marked except with a number 42 on the bottom right hand corner by the previous collector. I bought these from a lady that collected these designs and had quite a few of them but other than that I have almost never seen these outside of museums. The paper is 9.375 inches tall and 6.875 inches wide. It is in good condition with a bit of staining one would expect on old paper. Please email me for more information or other pictures.

Price is $399
