Original Antique Hand Colored Engraving, really a collectable book plate which was taken from a disbound 1863 Botanical book by Charlotte Gower. The exquisite print is so decorative, beautifully detailed and was printed on medium-weight, cream colored paper, blank on the reverse. Fabulous bright, clear colors as lush and deeply saturated as the day they were printed.
This flowering Orchid is so gorgeous in the shades of lavender purple. To be expected in prints of this age, there may be a few characteristic areas of foxing etc., this print is in beautiful antique condition. Perfect to frame, loves the company of others. Display in a grouping, these Orchid prints make a stunning statement!
