Women in Zouave Costume

Popular prints and postcards of women in Zouave costume.

These are from World War One. The print below was based on a n incident in the war but whether the laundress was in Zouave uniform or not didn't matter to the artist.

These fantasy postcards may have inspired these great historical fantasy wargaming figures of female Zouave troops.
