About Victorian Rose Prints
Our Service Pledge To You:
We accept all bank cards via Amazon Payments (which is just like Paypal) --OR--if you have online banking, you can always send us a one-time payment via electronic check, which is very convenient and easy. AND, Yes! we can ship to Canada at the Priority Mail insured rate. Let us know if you would like a quote, and we can then open that item to a Canada sale.
We guarantee the authenticity of all our antique and vintage items! Although we sell some of the finest antique paintings and prints you'll ever come across, please just keep in mind that most antique items (paintings & prints) are old and may have customary handling wear or small flaws that are unique and charming characteristics of any individual item. It's wise to examine the photographs of each listing carefully, and to ask to see more photographs if you need them. Our ultimate goal is to make your purchase memorable and satisfying, so that we become your seller of choice! My husband jokingly calls me the "Master Packer", as I always pack with extreme care, ultimately ensuring your package arrives safely. Above all, I want you to be happy with your purchase so that you'll visit again...and again! Layaways are encouraged and always welcome! Please ask about terms, we're very flexible.

I've loved flowers ever since I was a little girl, planting seeds my Mother gave me just about anywhere I could find an available patch of dirt. I've grown just about any flower my gardens could accommodate, from old rugosa roses to tall stands of huge bearded iris, giant zinnias, and dinnerplate dahlias. I was drawn to old rose paintings and vintage prints by what I call "curb appeal", and began my lifetime love of antique hunting in my early teens.
Forty years later, because of my acquired love of fine art, I published the book "The Life & Art of Paul de Longpre", based on the works of the highly acclaimed French Victorian watercolor artist. I have written articles and have been published several times in the American Art Review, RosaMundi, and the Fan Association of North America, as well as being interviewed on Ruby Lane's Blog Talk Radio. My 30-year collection is simply overflowing with treasures.
I'm currently listing some Victorian books from my personal collection--they include Victorian etiquette, Language & Poetry of Flowers, Medical Quack, and old cookbooks, some of which include entertaining ideas on Victorian courting, fashion, and sex! Our shop specializes in books that are in gift and library-worthy condition.
On a personal note, when I can, I travel (always looking for antiques!), and enjoy fly fishing here in the Pacific Northwest. I am a Certified Graphoanalyst (handwriting expert), and am a member of American MENSA.
We do have 2 other sites for reproduction prints of Victorian rose yard long prints, as well as other roses and florals, and cupids! Just click on the "Favorite Links" on the left hand side of this page and it will take you to each of our sites.
