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.

Here is a small but strikingly executed portrait of a man, in oil on canvas.

A real little gem of a painting.

Beautiful workshop cabinet

Beautiful, and characterful, small 1940s workshop cupboard.  Possibly British, this cabinet can be used as a great little storage cupboard.  It can be fixed to a wall or rest on a table or desk. Filled with various shelves and drawers, it is ideal as a receptacle for small personal items or stationery.

We fell in love with its character and have kept it completely untouched.  It still retains its original handles, lock and hinges, and although this does not seem to be the original paint, it is very old and has not been repainted for many decades.

It has many imperfections, such as scratches, knocks and uneven paint which are commensurate with age.  There are signs of historic woodworm which has been treated.

A cupboard with lovely proportions and immense charm that would look stunning in the vintage home.
