Vintage decorator's ladders

Vintage decorator’s ladders

£85.00

An unusual vintage decorator’s ladder – or trestle – complete with original chain and fittings.  This is perfect for re-purposing as a display piece and could be used for example in a large bathroom to hang towels and bathrobes, or in a living area to display books or collectables.

We have also seen these in conservatories and in gardens as differentiating display pieces for flowers and plants.

In good vintage condition with some patina, these ladders are increasingly hard to find nowadays.

Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – yellow star of Bethlehem and red clover

£58.00

Attractive pair of pressed flowers, both collected during the same 1939 expedition by Swedish botanist Torvald Fransson. These are lovely pieces of artwork, both in good vintage condition (with slight discoloration of the paper that is evidence of its pre-war heritage).  One is a pressed root, stalk and flower of the yellow star of Bethlehem, a Eurasian flowering plant species in the family Liliaceae.  It is widespread in central Europe with scattered populations in Great Britain, Spain and Norway to Siberia and Japan. This was collected in Vaggeryd, a small community in the south of Sweden and pressed on 22 April 1939.  The second is a root, stalk and flower of red clover (Trifolium Pratense), a herbaceous species of flowering plant in the bean family Fabaceae, native to Europe, Western Asia, and northwest Africa, This was also collected by the same botanist in the same area, pressed on 15 June 1939.  (A total of 5 pairs from the same botanist is available.)

The detailed description of the annotations on each page adds to the interest and appeal.

Would look wonderful properly framed or very simply hung on a peg.
