Set of 8 Assorted Notecards (George Edwards Watercolors)


Within Drayton Hall’s museum collection are 21 watercolors painted c. 1733 by George Edwards, a British naturalist who is considered the father of British ornithology. These remarkable paintings were acquired by John Drayton (1715-1779) prior to Drayton Hall’s construction beginning in 1738, and serve as powerful artifacts illustrating his intellectual pursuits in natural history, both within and beyond colonial South Carolina.

This set of assorted notecards features six images from the Lenhardt Collection of George Edward Watercolors: Black & White Chinese Pheasant, Carolina Parrot, Indigo Bunting, Eastern Screech Owl, Northern Cardinal, White-Throated Toucan . These eight beautiful notecards are packaged in a keepsake tin, making them perfect for gift-giving.
