1930s Swedish Herbarium Specimen - Black Medick
Beautiful vintage Swedish herbarium page featuring a black medick specimen, artfully pressed and well preserved on heavy paper.
I’ve come across many herbariums, and it’s always a special treat when the creator takes great care to preserve the specimens in an attractive way, with artful flourishes of roots and stems and careful mounting. Each specimen has a large Art Deco bordered label with handwritten notes.
This particular specimen was collected in Västervik, Sweden in 1931.
Condition: See photos for details.
Page measures 9 1/2” x 15 7/8”, and is shipped in pH-neutral backing board and sealed clear envelope, keeping it protected until you are ready to frame!
Handle specimens with care, keeping completely flat when removing it from its protective envelope. At over 90 years old, the slightest bend to the page can break or dislodge the specimen.
