These maps are over a 100 years old and now considered an official antique. Continue reading for the history.
The United States State Flower Map Company was incorporated by six Canby, Oregon men on March 10, 1911, under the laws of the State of Oregon. This was also the year of copyright of the map itself. The idea of the flower map was first conceived by A. W. Butterfield who was to become President of the Corporation. Mr. Butterfield spent approximately two years in research to establish the identity of the appropriate flower for each of the listed 46 states and 3 territories.
Lithographed on a satin-finished muslin material by the Katterlinus Litho Manufacturing Co. of Philadelphia, Pa. The maps were stored away in the attic of the W. H. Bair Warehouse (previously on Highway 99E in Canby), and all but forgotten until they were discovered in the 1960s.
This United States State Flower Map is not only a beautiful print, but after 100 years has taken on additional significance as a collector’s item.
Measuring 37” x 27”, these maps come with authenticity documentation.
