This is a matted original chromolithograph botanical that dates to mid-1800s! The print has a wonderful quality and rich depth of color, tone and texture. It features a bouquet of fresh flowers with a tulip. This came from a rare French book, Atlas d’Histoire Naturelle Botanique published in Paris and illustrated by a famed German naturalist, G H Schubert (1780-1860) in the mid-1800s. We were fortunate to “happen” upon this book in Paris and have since learned that this book can no longer be found in rare book dealers’ collections. This is a RARE, RARE find. The chromolithograph is in good vintage condition with some minor spotting on left side (shows more in the high resolution photo imaging than in real life). Measures 7 inches x 10 ¼ inches. Comes custom matted in neutral tone 16 x 20 inch mat ready for standard size frame. Please allow time for custom matting. (We are also listing other botanical prints from this rare collection in our shop; ask us if interested in other images.)
