tHE sAtUrDaY StOrE—Vintage Botanical Prints

It's Springtime, and the garden is starting to bloom!

"erica ewerana"_unsigned

Here is a preview of two really beautiful old botanical prints that are about to go up on troicollections.wordpress. They are both professionally framed and matted, both are dated, and one is labeled with the name of the 19th Century British nurseryman, S. Curtis (Samuel Curtis), who published a gardening catalog of his botanical illustrations.  

Take a look!  I'll post an update on facebook when they are up for sale, $60 each (shipping & insurance included).
