Snapdragon 1882 Victorian F Edward Hulme Antique Botanical Chromolithograph

$23.85 USD


Product Description

Here is a lovely Victorian chromolithograph from Edward Hulme gleaned from his 1882 English botanical reference and featuring the deadly -

Snapdragon [Antirrhinum]

Native to the Mediterranean region, Antirrhinum is commonly known as dragon flowers or snapdragons because of the flowers' fancied resemblance to the face of a dragon that opens and closes its mouth when laterally squeezed.

Frederick Edward Hulme (English botanist/artist; 1843-1930) was known as a teacher, artist, and amateur botanist. He was the Professor of Freehand and Geometrical Drawing at King's College, London from 1886. His most famous work was a magnificent nine-volume set on wildflowers.

The heavy paper is blank on its reverse, measures 5" x 7.5" (13x20 cm), and is smooth and shows little tanning. The paper is clean and smooth, the colors are vivid and clear, the corners are sharp, and there are no tears, marks, creases, or folds.

This is a gorgeous study to frame and gift for your favorite garden lover, fantastic to use in your art - card and tag creations, collage, scrap-book page making.

You are purchasing an original 1882 paper and it does not have watermarks. I will send this to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
