Orchids

Discover antique prints of orchids.

Orchids are a huge family of flowering plants. Many are spectacularly beautiful and fragrant. They have been used as food, perfumes and medicine.

Orchid collecting was a mania in the 18th and 19th centuries ! Orchid selling was big business. Hence, collecting expeditions travelled the world.

Scientists and artists studied and illustrated the orchids. Their beautiful illustrations were also used to help advertise orchids. They were printed as engravings and lithographs.
