Public domain illustrations Birds Basket


These are some fabulous Public Domain Illustrations!  This was scanned from a Circa 1890′s Ornamental Plant book. The lovely Ornamental Design that you see above, is actually an Antique Printer’s Ornament from the title page of the book. I thought it was so charming, with the little Birds on it. I love all the Fancy Scrolls and Vines and the beautiful Basket in the center too. So decorative! The original image is the black and white one that you see at the bottom, I’ve also made a few color options for you too including Red, Turquoise and a soft Green.  These would make pretty note cards or stationery!  You might also like some pretty Public Domain Floral Basket Illustrations HERE.

  1. Hello Karen. After all this time of being able to utilize these fabulous Graphic Fairy images, I would like you to know how much I appreciate all the hard work you put into to this. It ls like receiving a birthday gift everyday that I can use to create and pay it forward to bless others. I never buy cards anymore. I make them. My friends and family actually save them instead of just tossing them :) I just wanted you to know that I am thankful. Blessings ~
