Celebrate Summer with Bright Botanicals!

By Katie on Jul 14, 2016 at 1:35 pm

As we approach the height of summer, what better way to embrace the sun than to purchase a vividly hand-colored and custom framed botanical! Each piece is individually designed and archivally framed by our expert team of artisans. Benjamin Maund (1790-1863), the engraver of the lovely prints below, published the Botanic Garden journal starting in 1825 from Worcestershire, England. In a total of 13 volumes, Maund delicately depicted the flowering plants growing in the Royal Gardens. He dedicated the journal to the young Queen Victoria.

To explore more of our extensive collection of antique prints, or to purchase any of the pieces below, we invite you to visit our gallery on Upper Kirby, shop online, or give us a call at 713-622-7531!
