Sometimes I wonder if the reduction of overall style in our culture is tied to our advancement in technology, or if it's simply a dumbing down of standards to help raise the less talented up to a higher status in their chosen fields. Or perhaps it simply shows our society is lazy, and willing to settle. Either way, the magic seems to be fading....
Hello, Thomas. I've been a silent observer til now. With comments like this, it's probably for the best.

I love the colors and design and the incorporation of the leaves. The floral element reminds me of some of my bronze antique clothing buttons from the era, used to highlight or embellish a face or a figure.

Hello,
There's a Vogue Cover - December 5, 1907 that you posted on DECEMBER 5, 2012.
The patterns from the cover match the kazakh ornaments and the woman's head-dress.
I'm kazakh and I'd like to know who is the author of this cover, because it's really interesting for me.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Darina, sorry I don't know the artist. I have Kazakh connections and interests and I can see what you are seeing, but I have no further information. Best wishes
