Vintage Botanical Prints are the newest trend in eco-chic decorating. But why hang a reproduction when you can frame a real pressed piece of nature?

This listing is for a prepared herbarium specimen collected and pressed in the Philadelphia area. This flower is Runculus ficaria. It is a horrific invasive weed but it is also a really pretty buttercup! The leaves are heart shaped and the flowers, which bloom in the spring, are a vibrant yellow. You can see photos here: http://ecobota.blogspot.com/2011/04/invasiveedible-ranunculus-ficaria.html

This actual dried specimen is mounted on herbarium paper (buffered to be pH neutral to prevent yellowing and age deterioration) and is ready to be framed. I have distressed this paper with walnut ink and have hand lettered the scientific name along the bottom of the specimen. I feel like this gives the piece the feel of a botanical print, but instead of being a copied image it is a real one of a kind pressed flower on the page!

Botanicals make unique and one of a kind art pieces in your home or office.

Framed piece measures 11 x 9 x 1.5 inches and can be hung on the wall or stood on a table.

If you are interested in buying without the frame, please convo me and I will make you a frame-free listing.

Frequently asked questions about Ecobota

My real botanical specimens are mounted on herbarium paper sized 11.5 x 16.5 inches
I hand stain all of my papers with walnut ink to give a vintage look and feel to my specimens. The staining is not heavy handed and the background does not detract from the specimen on the page.

This does make the background unique on each piece, but they still work visually together in a collection.
