This fine original Victorian engraving is by renowned caricature artist JJ Grandville, from his Les Fleurs Animees series edited and published by Garnier Freres in 1867. It is embellished with hand applied water color.

It depicts the Everlasting flower with a beautifully engraved gold halo hovering above it emitting a golden light.. Below there lies the remains of the flowers and leaves beneath a scythe.. the symbol of Father Time. An enchanting subject.
