Friends, in a very round about way, I have become aware of some historical daffodil artwork that is available for sale.  Here are the details in case any of you have  interest:

I sent this initial inquiry after learning about the availability from a friend:  I was forwarded your contact info thru a series of emails originating with XXXXXXXXXX in Atlanta.  Can you provide me with any specific additional details for the four Narcissus botanicals you recently acquired for your antiques shop?   (4) botanical engravings by 17th. Century Dutch Painter: Emmanuel Sweerts (1522-1612”)?  I can pass this info on to daffodil people that might have interest in these.  What is the framed size?  It appears they are matted with marbleized mattes and French borders?  What is your price for this set, please.?

The seller responded as below:


The framed size is: 15”+1/2 X 21”+1/2

Yes, they are beautifully matted with marbleized mattes and French borders.

They were purchased from NYC botanical show in Feb/2000 from booth of Country Loft Antiques of Woodbury, Conn. The receipt shows amount paid was $5,900 and I’m offering them for sale for $4,800 (firm) for the set of four.

Thank you for your inquiry.
