These French botanicals are the real thing — NOT illustrations. They are in remarkable condition for their age, about 150 years old. One has a small hole in the mounting paper and another with two tiny flaws (see photos), some very pale foxing. The specimens were mounted carefully with narrow tape, titled, and signed with a flourish, by the collector. All are framed and matted on green archival paper. Frames are plastic with glass which looks quite nice, particularly when hung in a grid.
Each specimen measures 8½" 4" 7/8
Framed they measure 12" x 8 1/8"
