Tamopan Persimmon: This Tamopan Persimmon originated from Riverside, Riverside County, California, United States. It was painted in 1916 by Royal Charles Steadman (1875-1964).

The Painting:  Between 1886 and 1942, growers around the United States sent thousands of fruit and nut samples to the United States Department of Agriculture to be identified and painted. Lithographs of these watercolor paintings were created to illustrate USDA bulletins, yearbooks, and other publications distributed to growers and gardeners across America.

The Card:  These are high-quality matte 4” by 6” one-sided cards that can be used as a post card or framed as part of a wall arrangement.  The cards have the following characteristics: 4/4 full bleed; 300 GSM; paper thickness is 0.13″; and laminated feel. These are not greeting cards and do not come with an envelope.
