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) 17 of the book which measures 4.75” x 7.5” and contains images of 15 Alpine Saxifrage plants. They are White Mountain Saxifrage, Grey Saxifrage, Purple Saxifrage, Two-flowered Saxifrage, Rough Saxifrage, Mosslike Saxifrage. Evergreen Saxifrage, Dark Yellow Evergreen Saxifrage, Star Saxifrage, Changeable Saxifrage, Narrow-petalled Saxifrage, Flat-leaved Saxifrage, Seguier’s Saxifrage, Androsace-like Saxifrage, and Round-leaved Saxifrage. 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” cream colored matte to setoff the beauty of the images.

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!!!
