Here are three beautiful vintage floral illustrations.
The first flower, above, is a Japanese Anemone. It features a large white flower in bloom with another budding flower. Behind the flowers are three large green leaves.
The second flower, above, is a Chrysanthemum showing a large yellow flower in full bloom. The illustration includes three leaves growing from the stem of the plant.
The third flower is a Sweet William. Several red blossoms with white centers and white ruffled edges are grouped together. The flowers are in full bloom.
I scanned these original vintage floral illustrations from a set of books in my collection. The set of books is circa 1897 and titled Familiar Garden Flowers, by F. Edward Hulme.
New in my Etsy shop this week is a printable garden/gardening set of vintage ephemera. Included in the set are ten printable pages as well as the 40 individual images.
Preview is linked to my shop.
