Original Antique Hand Colored Engraving, really a collectable book plate which was taken from a disbound 1800's botanical book by John Sowerby. 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 beautiful as the day they were printed and paiinted by hand.
This flowering Orchid is so gorgeous in the shades of lavender, brown, green, and yellow. 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! Please note all prints in this collection compliment each other beautifully. Print measures: 9-3/4" x 6-1/2".
