I just love these hand-painted book plates. This one is of a pink rose and a red rose hip. This rose image was printed over 150 years ago, it doesn’t look a day over 100 does it? With pretty green leaves, a pink flower, yellow stamens and a green center, it would make a great addition to just about anywhere you need a spot of pink or a rose image.
This is one of a number of plant images which appeared in the 1858 publication Lessons From the Vegetable World.
