Breadfruit 1815 Austrian Biedermeier Era Antique Botanical Engravings

by PetitPoulailler

Beautiful, detailed, hand-colored botanical engravings, gleaned from an 1815 folio published by Bertuch, 'Picture Book For The Use and Amusement of Youth'.

This listing includes 2 separate papers -
* One paper features beautiful hand-colored engravings of the fruit, its leaves and seeds
* a second 2-sided descriptive text paper, in German and French

Each paper is quite heavy and measures approximately 8" x 9.5" (20x24 cm) and the engraved plate marks can be seen clearly on both papers. The handmade papers show a slight tanning and the hand-colored engravings are wonderfully vivid and bright.

The text paper is much lighter but is not tissue-y: the text is clear and strong. A lovely study to frame, this will be fantastic to use in your art - perfect for card and tag creations, scrap-book page making, jewelry, collage.

You are purchasing original 1815 papers and they don't have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
