This is a stunning engraving with hand coloring of a camellia flower with dark red petals. The variety is listed as Camellia Japonica insignis. This print comes from an 1831 botanical study by William Chandler Booth and is after the drawings of Alfred Chandler. The study was titled:
Illustrations and Descriptions of the plants which compose the natural order Camellieae, and of the varieties of Cammellia Japonica, cultivated in the gardens of Great Britain.
The engraving was done by Weddell. I have 6 of these engravings hung in my living room. You can see how beautiful they looked framed in gold here.
