'Rossney Pears' are a crisp and flavorful pear; naturally sweet and juicy. Sliced in a cobbler or fruit crisp, they keep their shape nicely and don't turn to mush. They are good "winter keepers" too, as they will stay fresh in a root-cellar cold storage through the long Maine winters.

Rossney Pears were cultivated extensively and finally perfected by The US Department Of Agriculture in 1904. This beautiful original 6" x 9" lithograph illustration from that same year shows one perfect Rossney Pear.

This sweet botanical illustration is just one of several harvested from a collection of simple and delightful USDA litho illustrations from the turn of the century; the colors are still lively and bright over 100 years later.

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these wonderful old botanical art prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last two photos are just to show how this might look when it's matted and framed. Your print will come unmatted and unframed.)

I'll send this fine old beauty to you by way of the USPS packaged flat and protected in a rigid mailer.
