This pair of orchid lithographs are actual pages from the illustrious eleven volume set known as, The Orchid Album. 

The two in this collection are:

Cattleya Trianae Massangeana Plate 242

Dendrobium Phalaenopsis Plate 187

The Orchid Album, published in London between 1872-1897, was a landmark horticultural collection on rare, new and beautiful Orchidaceous comprised by Robert Warner and Benjamin Samuelson Williams with  illustrations by John Nugent Fitch and Gertrude Hamilton. 

These lithographs are vibrant and highly detailed. They are in unbelievable condition for being well over 120 years old. 

The accompanying page with the reference information is attached to back of the Cattleya Trianae Massangeana.

They are custom matted and framed measuring 21” tall x 27” wide from the outside corners of the frame. 

I acquired them 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 across the South.
As you can imagine, their estate was unbelievable…it had the most extensive Majolica collection I’ve ever seen. They were avid book collectors, orchid enthusiasts, and custom framers who expertly framed botanicals and birds from antique books and magazines.

$677 for the pair INCLUDES INSURED SHIPPING in the continental US.
