Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – Butterfly-Orchid and Water-lily
Stunning pair of pressed flowers, both collected by Swedish botanist Torvald Fransson in 1939.
These are lovely pieces of artwork, both in excellent vintage condition (with slight discoloration of the paper that is evidence of its pre-war heritage).
One is a Lesser Butterfly-Orchid (Habenaria Bifolia), collected on 21 July 1939 and the other is a Yellow water-lily ((Nuphar Luteum) collected on 11 July 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.
