Description 2010 RC deWinter ~ All Rights Reserved ~~ All things exotic appealed to many Victorians of all classes, and what could be more exotic than a striking tropical orchid in the damp, dreary atmosphere of mid-19th century London? This postcard features a lightly enamelled orchid overlaid on a background of crystal beads, lace, and elaborate ornaments.
My thanks to my friend and talented artist Trixi Jahn for the orchid photo, which I digitally painted and placed on an original background.
