Cattleya (unidentified orchid). FLORAL MAGAZINE.

Cattleya (unidentified orchid).

Fitch (illus).
London. F. Reeve. No date. Ca. 1860.
Chromolithograph, sheet size 10 x 6 inches. Very good condition. Marked plate 4700 at upper right corner; likely from The Floral Magazine. A beautiful example of the early chromolithographic printing technique; the image has an appearance of a handcolored lithograph, in contrast to the very glossy later chromo plates. The orchid is unidentified, but seems to be a Cattleya. Item #50151

Price: $55.00
