Item details

Vintage Botanical Book Plate, Book Print - Flower Print - Crabapple blossoms - White throats nest - Country Diary of Edwardian Lady - Edith Holden - 1906

This book plate was taken from a old copy of A Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. This lovely old book was written by Edith Holden in 1906 and contains facsimile prints of Holden's nature sketches and water colors of the flora and fauna of the British countryside.

Edith Blackwell Holden (1871–1920) was a British artist and part-time art teacher, known in her time as an illustrator of children's books. Much influenced by the Arts and Crafts movement, she specialized in painting animals and plants.

The book page measures 9 by 7 inches and printed on very heavy manilla paper. There are no rips or tears and the discoloration seen is a natural part of the printing process so that the sketches would look naturally aged. These beautiful watercolor sketches are perfect for framing and would look lovely part of a cottage, country or edwardian decor. So pretty in nearly any room!

I have many pages available and would be happy to combine several into one order just for you.
