Free Vintage Chrysanthemum Illustration

Welcome to the first official Free Vintage Friday! I love to incorporate all sorts of vintage ephemera into my junk journals and I’m guessing if you’re here, you must too!

After weeks of endless gray clouds and non-stop frost warnings, yesterday finally felt like summer was on its way. To celebrate the warm sunshine, this week’s image is a vintage Chrysanthemum illustration dating back to 1896. I recently listed 22 of these vintage floral images in my Etsy shop (Vintage Floral Collection: 1896 Deconstructed Florals) and after I finished the project, I realized I accidentally left out the poor little chrysanthemum. It seems like a no-brainer to make it the absolute first Free Vintage Friday image.

The full size image measures 5 x 7.5″ and can be easily resized via your printer’s interface. I love the softness of this collection and plan to pair it with some vellum soon as the delicacy of both appear to be a match made in heaven. Click the download button below to save your full-size image in a .jpeg format.

If you like this image, please spread the word about Free Vintage Fridays!

Till next time,

  1. Aw thanks Gina! I’m trying dandelion dyeing today and this would look pretty on a yellow page, if I make it work with the few dandelions I picked. Can’t wait to see!
