Simple Botanical Illustrations Equal Modern Home Décor! Our antique hand colored engravings of flowers. Classic yet Modern in feel. $95. Each. Click here to contact us.

These fold out antique flower prints are simple in color.  They are hand colored copper plate engravings on wove rag paper.  Published in London from 1801-1830, these are genuine antiques.  Predominately shown and for sale here is the work of Curtis and Edwards.  Each botanical illustration was published for the Curtis Botanical Magazine.  Issued once a month, the periodical was received by anxious and excited subscribers.  A small paperback like type of magazine.  Gardeners and well to do people who read would collect, discuss and define garden plans including many of the latest species described.

This grouping of Curtis and Edwards botanical engravings are the fold outs.  Those considered worthy enough of such time consuming and elaborate work required to make them.  Carefully collected for years we are offering this beautiful set of modern looking ones for sale here.  Assorted flowers but quite simple in coloration to be considered for your modern home décor!  Classic artwork is timeless.

Syndham Edwards was largely responsible for water coloring each and every illustration immediately after printing.  He was a talented sole. His water color illumination rarely varied from plate to plate, consistent in quality and the actual colors of the water color.  The Curtis Botanical Magazine started in 1787 and still is published today.

Each old flower print measures about 9″ high x 11 1/2″ wide.  They would be dramatic framed in a simple style.  Monotone large matting… Or perhaps an arrangement under an acrylic sheet of plexi glass to use in a modern home or loft.
