    More Information:

    Gerard van Spaendonck (1746-1822). Paper has toned; mat burn. Top right corner slightly wrinkled. Minor bleedthrough of staining caused by mounting tape at top corners on reverse. Print has been trimmed. Normally issued with hand-coloring, this print has been left uncolored. In Sitwell and Blunt's Great Flower Books, they write of Spaendonck's work: "Copies are occasionally found either hand-colored or printed in color and retouched with watercolor the watercolor serves in fact to cloud the delicacy of the stipple-work. In their black and white state, these prints may well claim to be the finest flower-engravings ever made." Light penciled notations. 13.75 x 20.5 inches.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
