Watercolour on paper. Original drawing for plate XIX in John Lindley's 'Sertum orchidaceum: a wreath of the most beautiful orchidaceous flowers; selected by John Lindley', published in 1838. Monochromatic study in sepia, shows leaves, flowers and roots of plant, with flower details beneath. Inscribed lower left corner, 'Rec'd Sept.15, 1925'. According to Lindley, 'This beautiful and graceful plant, a native of the forests of Sylhet, was originally obtained by Dr Wallich in April 1819, from Dr. Carey's Garden at Serampore, when a drawing was made by the artists employed in the Botanic Garden, Calcutta, from which the principal part of the materials for the accompanying figure have been taken'.
