Pair of vintage botanical pressed flowers – bog-myrtle sweet willow and coltsfoot

Attractive and original 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 root, flower and leaf of coltsfoot, a plant in the groundsel tribe in the daisy family Asteraceae, native to Europe and parts of western and central Asia. This was collected from an area called Vaggeryd in the South of Sweden and pressed on 16 April 1939. The other is myrica gale, a species of flowering plant in the genus Myrica, native to northern and western Europe and parts of northern North America and more commonly called bog-myrtle sweet willow, Dutch myrtle, and sweetgale. This was collected by the same botanist from the same area in Sweden and pressed on 9 May 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.

Characterful 1930s-40s wall mounted first aid cupboard Out Of Stock

Characterful 1930s-40s wall-mounted First Aid cupboard

Very unusual 1930s/40s factory or laboratory First Aid cupboard, complete with detailed health and safety warnings affixed to the door behind glass, with ‘First Aid” in bold lettering to the front.  There is a shelf within to stand products etc, and two holes at the back to mount the cupboard to a wall.

We’ve never seen a First Aid cupboard like this, and believe it is British, used in a small lab or factory around the middle of the last century. It has clearly been used and shows signs of wear to the door, which in many ways adds to its unique charm.  Very , unique, practical and a stand-out, characterful piece.
