Tote Bag: Peaches

This durable cotton tote bag is printed with a bright and cheery print of two peaches. It has plenty of room to carry your books, clothes, or groceries - you name it! Natural cotton cloth with four-color image. The illustration is from a color plate printed by C.M. Search of Rochester, NY, for a nurseryman's fruit and flower catalog. Search was active from 1880-1900 and often used watercolors and a stencil process to produce his lush and evocative images of horticulture products. The original is held in Melbert B. Cary, Jr. Graphic Arts Collection at RIT.
