French Vegetables 1897 Antique Engraved Botanical Chromolithograph
'Legumes et Plantes Potageres' - French Vegetables 1897 Antique Engraved Botanical Chromolithograph
Here is a lovely paper showing dozens and dozens [for a total of 84 veggies!] of French vegetables, including -
Veggies in full bloom - their leaves, roots, stems, fruits, and gorgeous variations are here. Gleaned from an 1897 French Nouveau Larousse Illustrated encyclopedia, the beautifully detailed engraved chromolithographs are presented in lovely, deep rich tones of green, bronze, gold, yellow and brown. My favorite? That gorgeous pumpkin!
The heavy paper has dictionary text ["Le Hir - Le Mouél"] on the reverse and measures approximately 9.25" x 12.25" [23.5x31.1 cm]. At the bottom you will find all 84 of the vegetables keyed with their French names. Please expect the normal nicks and pings of a century+-old paper, but nothing of any significance. Smooth and clear and showing foxing along the paper's margins, the paper is clean and without mark, tear, crease or fold.
A perfect image to frame for your home decor ... maybe your kitchen? ... perhaps you will use it in your artistic efforts. Altogether perfect for card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, collage.
You are purchasing an original 1897 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
