Antique chromo lithograph of the Arachnanthe Cathcartii orchid, 1902

Item number: 3.1

This colourful and detailed chromolithographic plate of Arachnanthe (Renanthera) Cathcartii orchid originates from the 1902 edition of the Wiener Illustrierte Garten-Zeitung, the illustrated Viennese horticultural magazine published by the Austrian Kaiserlich-Königliche Gartenbau-Gesellschaft. 


The magazines were authored and edited by Alfred Burgerstein (1850-1929), a botanist, teacher and and secretary-general of the Gartenbaugesellschaft.


This exquisite 120-year-old plate is in excellent condition and comes with a pre-cut high quality matboard with a light sage-green coloured top layer. The matboard is acid-free, protecting the print.
