This is a stunning and realistic, hand coloured etching of Hyachithus Orientalis. The hand painting is still bright and vibrant.
The picture was re-framed sometime in the mid 20th Century in Düsseldorf. The gilt frame is nice quality and sympathetic to the age of the etching.
The framers have helpfully added the identification to the back of the frame. This is in German but roughly translates as "Original hand coloured, copper etching of Maund 1820"
The painting is expertly done and is set off very nicely by a neutral, cream coloured mount.
The Latin name for the flower is printed in old text beneath the picture Hyacinthus ??????????
The condition is very good for the age with just a few surface signs of wear to the frame, which in our opinion is not detrimental and actually adds to the charm of this beautiful old picture.
Please see the photographs for clarification.
