Up for bid is a CD-ROM REPUBLICATION of the original ''Victorian Paper Flower Making'' instructions with steel plate etchings by experienced fancywork paper artists from the Victorian arts and crafts era. This information was originally published in 1877! (Original is NOT for sale)
This HISTORIC item contains etchings, instructions, diagrams, designs materials and fundamentals for creating a variety of paper work floral items. There are many, many ANTIQUE etchings of leaf and petal templates and designs for a pleathora of wax flower ornaments with significant cultural and historical 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 Europe!
A few quotes:
''Nest to was flowers, those made of fine tissue-paper are the most elegant, and the art of forming them is capable of being carried to a high state of perfection. Unlike the art of forming wax-flowers, this may be made to give satisfaction in the hands of a mere tyro; although when executed by a skillful and practiced artist it is so charming in its various combinations that it will amply repay a patient and perservering stucy of its many technicalities, and a continued series of attempts at forming, any and every flower and but that comes within the reach.''
What a historically educational and delightful art instructional piece this is!
