Print: These are quite often wrongly described as by George Baxter, the inventor of colour printing but these are actually produced by his son George Baxter Junior and date from the 1870's.


Initially GB Jr produced them by his father’s patent process but in a letter in 1874 he stated he had to give up using his father’s process to use the cheaper Chromolithography. These four are examples of those printings.


Four individual needle box prints taken from a sheet of twelve. These were printed and produced for the Victorian needle industry and meant to be stuck on to the lids of small boxes containing sewing needles or similar which were very popular with ladies at the time, yet these boxes are so hard to find today.
