Product Description

Here is a pair of beautiful 1815 Austrian Biedermeier Era botanical engravings featuring the invasive plants - Teasel and Plantain

Gorgeous hand colored engravings, gleaned from an 1815 natural history folio by Bertuch, 'Picture Book for the Use and Amusement of Youth'.

This listing includes 2 separate papers -
- The first paper features beautiful hand-colored engravings of the two 'weedy' plants, their fruit, leaves and flowers, all in great detail
- A second 2-sided paper features descriptive text in German and French

Each paper measures approximately 8" x 9.5" (20x24 cm). Plate marks can be seen clearly on both papers. The handmade papers show slight tanning.

The hand-colored engravings are wonderfully vivid and bright on a quite heavy paper. The text paper is much lighter, but not tissue-y: the text is clear and strong.

A lovely study to frame, fantastic to use in your art ... perfect for your card making, jewelry, collage, mixed media.

A copy of the book's Title Page will be included for provenance.

You are purchasing original 1815 papers and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
