I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend.
I wanted to share with you my new love for vintage botanical prints.
This copper engraving from 1729 by Jaquin.
He was one of the first to document American botanicals.
The frame is handmade using the paper out of the actual
engraving book that the botanical picture came from.
The botanical print has been water colored by hand. The name
at the top of the frame is the botanical variety.
I found this at A Beautiful Mess Antiques
There are many one-of-a-kind prints to chose from.
Have a wonderful day!
