The plant drawn in this reproduction of a vintage book illustration is today known as a blood dock, and it can be found in gardens as an ornamental garden plant. Dark red small flowers and red veins on big green leaves easily capture our attention when drawn, too. The original drawing was printed in a Dutch botanical book from the year 1699. Exact in its depiction, the plant is pictured with its roots, commanding over a cultivated landscape. Simple and elegant beige wooden frame adds to its presentation, making it a good choice for a wall décor in a traditional, rustic or farmhouse interior.
At Vintage Print Gallery, we do our best to offer the most interesting, sophisticated and unique pieces of art to our loyal customers. While many of our offerings come from painstakingly collected antiques, such as hundreds of years old atlases, photo albums and herbariums, we have also gone a step further and now offer remastered pieces, as well as original art. Our original art takes inspiration from our existing catalog and builds on it. Our remastered pieces bring new colorways, sharper images and more intricate details from restored vintage works of art. Additionally, we also offer silver, gold and copper leaf enhanced art, with real metal applied to the prints.
