About this Image:

We have the melon represented in our picture, a fruit which much delighted the Crusaders who went out to battle with the Saracens, for it was not then grown in the West. The chief gardener to Henry VIII is said to have planted the first bed of melons in England.

Quantities of the kind called the `musk melon' were grown on the moist ground about Lambeth during the seventeenth century, and carried to the city in boats. Another kind, named the cantaleupe, after a castle in Italy, was much admired for its flavour....

From a children's book titled The Chatterbox , 1899.

price: $10.00


Medium. Really an easy stamp to use, but the darkness of the fruit in spots can make the coloring of the image a challenge.
