The Mystery of the Redoute Rose Print

A reader wrote in to us to ask for help in gathering information about some Redoute rose prints (chromolithographs?) she has. I’m posting a picture in the hope that someone out there might have some information about the publisher, Henry B. Sandler of NYC (printed on its verso).

Screen shot 2012-02-05 at 8.35.40 PM.png Our reader has done some Googling and found the same rose print in brighter colors, with the words “Bouquet No. 3” printed below the image. Hers lacks that, having only “P. J. ReDoute” under the image. I’m also showing below the more colorful version offered by J. Manley Gallery. Comment below or email me at rebecca at finebooksmagazine.com if you can help solve this mystery!
