Wax Flowers, Fruits, etc.!

CD Republication™

Originally published in 1875!

130-yr-old Antique Victorian Etchings & Instructions for Wax Flower & Fruit Making!

 

If you are the first to bid on this auction, using the buy-it-now option, YOU WIN! There is no chance of being outbid! DON'T WAIT!

 

Up for bid is a CD-ROM Republication™ of the original ''Wax Flowers, Fruits, etc.,'' instructions with steel plate etchings or woodcuts by experienced fancywork wax artists from the Victorian Arts and Crafts era. This information was originally published in 1875! (Original is NOT for sale)

This HISTORIC item contains illustrations, instructions, diagrams, designs materials and fundamentals for creating a variety of wax work floral items. There are ANTIQUE etchings of leaf templates and designs for wax flower ornaments with significant cultural and historical based instructions included!

This type of original information is seldom found on Atomic Mall or elsewhere! I was fortunate enough in my bibliomaniacal searching to run across this gem and am sharing with those who love the old arts as much as I!

These instructions are characteristic of the crafts done by our lady ancestors during the Victorian and Antebellum cultural periods and earlier! This is the perfect opportunity to purchase your own version of another wonderful creative art informational source revealing our heritage from early America and European!

 

A few quotes:

''Copies of flowers and fruit in wax are, undoubtedly, the most truthful and life-like that can be conceived; and as the contemplation of the beautiful is always interesting and instructive, so the art of copying or producing faithful imitations of the same, must tend to instruct and refine the taste and improve the mind of the operator; and it will be found that those persons constantly engaged in copying the lovely things scatterd by a munificent Crator, through our woods and glens, will be ever on the watch for beautiful objects; this alone would be a high recommendation in favor of teaching the art of forming the flowers and fruit of our own and distant lands. ''

What a historically educational and delightful art instructional piece this is!
