Botanical pressed flowers Out Of Stock

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

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.

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.

1940s haberdashery drawers

Very pretty painted 1930s/40s mini haberdashery cabinet. On small bun feet, this pine cabinet features five drawers all with matching knobs, one deep drawer at the bottom for larger items and three of the remaining four are segmented into small compartments for smaller items such as cottons or needles.  Perfectly-sized to sit on a table top or on a bedroom side table, this mid-century cabinet could be used either for haberdashery bits and pieces or for jewellery, make-up or indeed for smaller items in the kitchen.

We love its versatility and the way the drawers are segmented. A very pretty and practical piece.
