Professionally Mounted Original Antique (c1915) Chromolithographic Plate - Prunis cerasus Cherry Blossom.
This colour plate printed by J.B Lyon Company, USA, from a book documenting the various species of cherries, was published in 1915 on cream-colored medium weight quality paper. It is in very good condition but has a few small areas of foxing within the mount which are visible in the images (near the bottom left corner)...synonymous with being over 100 years old.
The plate has been professionally hinged onto a specially cut high quality green coloured mat, and mounted onto a foam core backing. The overall mount is ready to frame, & has been deliberately sized to suit a standard frame, should you wish to buy one 'off the shelf' rather than have the print professionally framed.
These prints are wonderful on their own, or framed and hung together as a set.
Approximate actual print size - 220 x 300mm
Mat window size - 200 x 270mm
Overall mat size 40 x 50cm - to suit 16 x 20" standard frames.
Please note that the prints on offer are genuine vintage or antique, & therefore being offered as 'one off's'. You will not find them readily available to buy, or on display in someone else home. This makes them special, but the downside is if you miss out on one that you have your eye on I may not be able to source it again for you. If you would like a bigger set, please contact me as I may have more available in the collection.
