Tunisia: Tunisian bride

This black and white print of a young Tunisian bride wearing a fouta, blouse, veils and jewellery was removed from a 19th century book and sold at an antiques fair in Schleissheim, Munich, Germany (1993). Even though I find it sad that old books are destroyed, I fell in love with this picture of a young Tunisian bride in all her finery, looking at herself in a small hand mirror.
