We have a collection of original antique prints of nests, shells and tropical scenes for sale. These are all over 100 years old and were pages of beautiful books at one time. The nest prints are from a book called BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES, by Thomas G. Gentry, published in 1882. Each print is $50.00, unframed. What is shown here may be only a part of the actual print but is actual size for the space it occupies on a normal computer screen .
I thought these prints would be great framed, as a group, in a kitchen, sunroom or even a bedroom. They would also work well (photocopied) as decoupage for glass plates , print transfers onto fabric for cushions, T-shirts, pillowcases ….. lots of projects . They would also look amazing enlarged to poster size as wall art !
These prints measure 9.25″ x 11.75″, unmatted, unframed. We only have ONE of each ! They are not ‘out’ at the nursery (to protect them), so ask one of the staff if you come here to see or buy any. They can be mailed safely, to anyone, anywhere . Shipping wouldn’t cost much, but would be extra.
We have a pair of these exotic tropical foliage pages from a French book. They are gorgeous ! Each measures 6.25″ x 9.75″ . As with the nest prints, they would look incredible blown up to poster size (at Kinko’s), or framed as they are now. Each page is $50.00 .
I also love shell prints. I chose this one as the most beautiful one of the bunch . It measures 6″ x 9.5″ and is also$50.00 .
