Issued c.1809, London, by P. Miller
Engraved by T. Jefferys
A visually appealing and uncommon old vintage engraved botanical print with beautiful, original hand color. Offered for the outstanding modern appeal of the printed image.
In near VG [or better] condition: displays light uniform age toning as typical, with some light to moderate edge wear, slight waviness to the sheet, overall the image is clean and presentable. Any minor defects may hopefully be clearly seen in the scanned image.
Please examine the scan closely as the picture forms a central part of the description. There is a zoom feature so you can see close up. [note: we grade very conservatively and always seek to disclose any noteworthy flaws].
Overall, the image area remains clean and very attractive.
Unique and arresting old printed image entirely worthy of hanging for display or presenting to someone as a present.
