Tiger Iris

Tigridia pavonia var speciosa

This beautiful lithograph with original hand coloring was made in 1851 and comes from Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe by Louis van Houtte, a famous nineteenth century Belgian horticulturalist. He employed plant collectors to bring back attractive plants from around the world then illustrated many of the most beautiful in his celebrated work Flore des Serres. This is a genuine antique not a reproduction and is in good condition. This is a fold out print so has a discreet centrefold, in the same manner as large antique maps.
