A set of six 18thc thistles by weinmann

A set of six Botanical engravings of different varieties of Thistle by Johann Wilhelm Weinmann from the rare first edition of ‘Pytanthoza Iconographia’. This was a pioneering work as it made successful use of the colour-printed mezzotint process retouched in transparent or opaque watercolour.

Presented in bespoke frames behind UV70 glass which cuts reflection and offers some UV protection.


  • H: 52.5cm (20.67in)
  • W: 40.5cm (15.94in)

For TIGER LILY ART what began as a hobby has become a small family run business. Based in Surrey, we deal in sets of antique prints and engravings of largely botanical and natural history subjects, but also items which we like and would be happy to hang at home. In fact, this is our guiding principle - we stock nothing that we would not be happy to own ourselves. 

We are passionate about what we do and all our prints and engravings are in excellent condition bearing in mind their age, are presented in bespoke frames behind UV70 or Tru Vu glass. Mounts are chosen with care to enhance the subject matter and all sets are put together so that they hang well together. Inspection is welcome by appointment.

We are happy to discuss specific requirements and will split sets in certain instances, should what we have on offer not work in the chosen position.

We have a large portfolio of unframed items too which can be framed to order.
