Rare 19th Century Watercolor Prints "Fleurs de Fantasie" by Buchert
A lovely framed and hand-colored print from the book "La Flore Industrielle: Fleurs de Fantasie" by Buchert. Each book plate has a floral scene of fantastical imagined flowers that have been individually painted with watercolors. The printer of this large bookplate was Berthaud - and the publisher was the Parisian editor A.Clavas. The prints were made in 1888, and printed as stamped, on Rue Reumont. There are some hand written notes and marks in pencil on the drawings, as well as a signature on the bottom right hand corner. The prints are archivally mounted with natural cloth, framed with beautifully crafted real gold leaf edge framing, stamped on the back by Hrefna Jonsdottir Gallery. Hrefna Jonsdottir was a leading Fine Art Gallery in the NJ area that was established in the 70's, which closed in 2011. The glass is museum quality, protecting the prints against UV damage. Two of these rare prints are available through the store, each priced individually. The book of fantastical flowers has a total of 20 pages. The pages are quite large with the actual drawing being 15 x 9 inches. The paper is in great condition for its age, with minor foxing. With the frames the pieces are 54 inches by 24 inches wide. Alone, or as a pair these flower book plates make an elegant addition to any interior, and add a romantic and Parisian touch to any bedroom. For the historian or collector, these Buchert prints are a rare and special find!
