Bird-foot Violet - 1929

SKU: VMP1054 $16.50 USD



Historic Overview

This antique colored plate features the image of a delicate Bird-foot Violet. The print comes from the book Field Book of American Wild Flowers by F. Schuyler Mathews, who was a Member of the New England Botanical Club. The book was originally copyrighted by Mr. Mathews in 1902. This revised edition was copyrighted in 1927. It is the Twenty-ninth printing by G. P. Putnam’s Sons of New York and London, printed in 1929 by The Knickerbocker Press. The color plates are by the author.

This vividly colored illustration features a cluster of beautiful Bird-foot Violets in full bloom. The throat of the flower is obstructed by the orange antlers and the style, preventing access to the nectar. It is therefore required to have long-tongued insects for cross-fertilization, which is commonly supplied by the yellow butterfly. The print is professionally matted in an 8” x 10” purple colored matte to highlight the beauty of the flowers. Our vintage prints are shipped in a plastic sleeve between cardboard stiffeners to arrive in perfect condition.

Keep in mind, an antique print will never be “perfect” like a new print and there are sometimes tiny occasional spots and/or discoloring or aging. However, we only sell mint or almost mint prints and will not sell anything that we would not be proud to hang on our own walls!!!


WE GUARANTEE ALL PRINTS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
