These prints were made in France. All of the original text is in French as well.

The two (2) unframed prints include: Camellia Grétry and Camellia Maculata Perfecta

Each is approximately 12 1/2" X 9 3/8" (inches).

The four (4) framed prints include: Camellia Colletti, Camellia Commensa, Camellia Maestosa, and Camellia Tapouica

Each one is framed in a matching, dark wood frame and papered across the back with a wire near the top for hanging. On the back of each is written the name of the original owners and a memorandum by one of their children indicating that they were originally framed to go in a bedroom some time between 1954-1961.
