[Billet- Movable, Hand-Colored] "My Present is a Secret..."

"Do not discover me, it is not necessary; otherwise, your new gaze will make me blush." Partially hand-colored movable etching in stippling style. 10.3 x 7.1 cm. Vienna, around 1820. A young lady in a green dress with a laced hood holds out a white cloth with the inscription "My present is a secret," and when the lever is lifted on a semi-circular tab path, a young couple is revealed whose lips touch gently and the words "a warm kiss" appear. Quite enchanting.
