Winter Spice


This beautiful, unique set of reprints (the originals of which dated 1888), depict various spices viewed under a microscope: White mustard, cloves, allspice, black mustard, cinnamon and black pepper berry. Interestingly, the microscopist who developed these spice studies, predicted that fingerprints would be used in criminal convictions.

This collection has been re-designed with delicate gold-leaf frames and earthy, antique coloured mounts. These prints are also slightly larger in comparison to our previous Spice series. These prints are available as singles, multiples or as a whole set.

Please note, these are reproduction prints, not the originals. All our reproductions originate from antiques carefully sourced by Petri Prints.
