This is a beautiful steel engraved hand colored plate from the book "Les Fleurs Animees." The plate is by JJ Grandville and is of the flower Camellia. I bought this plate sometime ago intending to frame it and put it off so long, it no longer fits in with my decor. I don't believe this is a plate from the original 1847 publication but it is one of the french editions which were all printed in the 1800s. When I purchased the print, the seller also included a few pages of text with it, and I will include them too. The print measures 7" by 10 1/2".
