Montage of Four Pears of Rochester: Howell, Bartlett, Worden Seckel, and Flemish Beauty. This print includes four digitally restored reproductions from a series of antique "Plates for the Nurserymen." The original print was used as a salesmen's sample to illustrate varieties of fruits, vegetables, and trees offered by 19th Century Nurseries located in Rochester, New York. Plates came in several formats such as hand-colored prints, theorem painting, woodcuts, and chromolithographs sold by Rochester’s printing firms from 1860-1905. The originals for this print were a chromolithograph by the Stecher Lithographic and the Rochester Lithographic Companies.
