The listing is for a original vintage mid-century pull down botany school chart of white nettle (Lamium album). The poster features stunning illustrations of the white nettle flower, blooms, leaves, seeds, stems, and roots against a pretty light blue background.

This poster was created in the middle of the last century, during a period of educational reform in Germany. The series was named after the three men who created it (Jung, Koch, and Quentell): a doctor, an artist, and a teacher. Together, they sought to improve the quality of educational materials in Germany; these charts were the product of their collaboration. The posters are famous for their vibrant colors and scientific detail. One of the most notable features about this series is absence of text, making the posters a beautiful and incredibly versatile teaching tool (translation was not required).

This classroom chart would undoubtedly make a lovely addition to any room, and would not only serve as a beautiful wall hanging but a unique and interesting conversation piece.

The wall hanging is printed on paper and backed with linen. It has black wooden rods on the top and bottom end. It was printed in Dusseldorf, Germany by Lehrmittelverlag Hagemann in 1969.

NOTE: Jung Koch Quentell school charts are going for $800 on 1st Dibs in NYC.

CONDITION:
The poster is in excellent vintage condition, showing more vibrant colors and much less wear than similar posters from this era. This poster was part of a collection from a school, and there is a small white label in the upper right hand corner. The label is visible in the photos. We did not try to remove it, as it is simply part of the poster's history. The back of the poster has minimal signs of wear. There is a plastic hanging hook that has been attached to the center of the top rod, which could be easily removed if desired.
