Silk Weed (Asclepias syriaca )

North America

This is from a set of antique prints of American flowers and fruit found. They were made by John Keese in the USA in the 1850s. This print is an authentic antique, not a reproduction. It is a hand finished lithograph. The background colors were printed using lithography, and the detailed colors painted by hand. The hand coloring is relatively broad brush. It was printed on thick, stiff paper with the image printed on one side, and the reverse side blank. It is in good condition. There is some light foxing on a few of the prints in this series, please check the image above.
