Historic Overview

This antique print is a floral botanical chromolithograph with phenomenal color and depth. The print comes from the book Alpine Flowers by L. Schroter and Professor Dr. C. Schroter published in 1904 by Albert Raustein of Zurich, Switzerland. This ninth edition is officially titled Coloured Vade-Mecum to the Alpine Flora and is in English, French and German. The lithograph was done by Anst. von Werner & Winter in Frankfurt, Germany.

This is Tafel (Plate) 15 of the book which measures 4.75” x 7.5” and contains images of 6 Alpine Shrubs. They are Mountain Buttercup, Alpine Crowfoot, Aconite-leaved Crowfoot, Grass of Parnassus-leaved Crowfoot, Pyrenean Crowfoot, and Glacier Crowfoot. Attached to the back of the matte is the original book page describing the flowers.

The print is professionally matted in an 8” x 10” green colored matte to setoff the beauty of the images and will be shipped in plastic sleeves between cardboard stiffeners.  These are original prints, NOT modern reproductions.

Keep in mind, an antique print will never be “mint” like a new print and there are sometimes tiny occasional spots and/or discoloring or aging. However, we will not sell anything that we would not be proud to hang on our own walls!!!
