Grasses and Grains 1815 Austrian Biedermeier Era Botanical Engraving
Antique 1815 Austrian Biedermeier Era Natural History Engraving, Grasses and Grains
Beautiful, detailed, and hand-colored engravings of "Curious Grasses", gleaned from an 1815 folio edition of Bertuch's, 'Picture Book For The Use and Amusement of Youth'.
This listing includes 2 separate papers -
* the first features beautiful hand-colored engravings of the Rye and Colonial Bentgrass, all in great detail
* a second 2-sided descriptive text paper, in German and French
Each paper measures approximately 8" x 9.5" (20x24 cm). Plate marks can be seen clearly on both papers. The handmade papers show only a very slight tanning.
The hand-colored engravings are wonderfully vivid and bright on a quite heavy paper. The text paper is much lighter, but not tissue-y: the text is clear and strong.
A lovely study to frame, fantastic to use in your art ~ your card making, jewelry, collage, mixed media.
You are purchasing original 1815 engravings and they do not have watermarks. I will send these to you flat, protected, and by USPS 1st Class mail.
