French cards with etching from 1710

I love finding 'treasures'. Over the weekend I came across these wonderful cards (4) from Musée de l'Orangerie, Paris/Cologne. They have prints attached to the front of them that are hand colored, and the image dates from 1710. 

Attributed to Janvier Ianuarius Gennaio - from a series of allegorical representations of the months. The cards are obviously quite old, but in fabulous condition.

Available to you, on Etsy in the Dreamy Papers shop.
