Gallery of 19th Century Antique
Plant & Flower Prints & Engravings
Unlike most of the botanical prints you will find on the web these are not reproductions. Every one of the exquisite works below is an authentic antique engraving. Each is an original painting with all of the colors meticulously applied to the engraving by the Curtis family's artists in the early 1800s. These are exceptional works of art that are increasingly difficult to find. In fact, we have only one of each of these pieces in stock.
In addition to what you see below, many more prints and engravings are in the process of being prepared for this gallery. Please check back often. If you are looking for a particular piece, please e-mail us or call 1-877-4-PAST-MAPS.
All of our authentic more than 100-year old maps and prints come double matted within museum quality, archival rag mat boards at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. You can complete your purchase with our custom frames (which feature UV-filtering glazing) at a very reasonable price. Please click on the framing link above.
All are one-of-a-kind items. Since they are actual old works of art expect small imperfections. In some cases we may have more than one of a particular map or print. Since each is unique they may vary slightly from the item shown. Each map or print has been dry cleaned by hand. To preserve these items for future generations enjoyment, we have also deacidified each one using the same method as the U.S. Library of Congress. This should extend their life by 3 to 5 times. Every work in our gallery carries a lifetime guarantee of authenticity and a 90-day satisfaction guarantee (see Information page for details). Matted size is approximate.
