Herbarium Specimen - Alsike Clover
Vintage herbarium page featuring a pressed clover specimen, carefully stitched to the paper with thread. The page still has its protective tissue, and could easily be trimmed for framing if desired.
The borders are hand drawn and numbered, with handwritten labels. I believe they are in Russian; the location from which the specimens were collected is probably indicated in the label, but I'm unable to translate it!
This specimen has an ink blot on the protective tissue that had leaked through to the herbarium sheet. Specimen is well preserved. Paper is tanned with some bleached spots.
Page measures 8" x 11 3/8".
