From 1899 Victorian England and naturalist and illustrator James Sowerby, here is a stunning hand-colored botanical engraving featuring -
Nettle-leaved Goosefoot [Chenopodium murale]
The heavy, captioned paper measures 6.25" x 9.5" (16x24 cm) and shows a gentle edge-tanning to betray its years. The paper is clean and smooth, the engraving is strong and bold, and the hand-coloring is clear and bright. The corners are sharp and there are no folds, tears, marks, or creases.
This is a gorgeous botanical study to frame and will be fantastic for your art - card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage.
You are purchasing an original 1899 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
