I love antique books, orchids, and estate art….This combines three of my things! It’s an actual page from the 1885 antique Linden series. It has been double matted and is ready to frame. It measures 20.25” tall x 16” wide.

It’s the Lindenia Gongora Portentosa Roses Chromolithograph.

I acquired it and others at the estate of two highly regarded college professors who after retirement in the 1990s turned their love for collecting into a prosperous antique business selling in Round Top as well as other shows across the country.

They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines.

Sourcing the South is my favorite thing to do... finding vintage and antique pieces that have been cherished for years and hopefully will be for years to come. Many are steeped in history and tradition and some are just pretty but all are thoughtfully curated by so that I can bring you the very best of what I find💙

Here’s a little about this book:

Jean Linden (1817-1898) was a famed “orchid hunter”. He spent many years searching for orchids in their native habitat before importing back to Belgium and opening a nursery with his son, in Brussels. This led to Belgium being known as a dominant force in the cultivation of orchids.

Together, they published this fabulous collection of orchids, ‘ Iconographie des Orchidées’. Consisting of two parts, the first series was 10 volumes published from 1885-1894 with the second comprised of seven volumes published from 1895-1901.
