Antique Pressed Botanicals from France

Great Falls, Virginia 0 Sales On Etsy since 2014

Announcement   Botanical Collections of Great Falls, VA is pleased to present antique pressed botanical specimen pages over 100 years old from the large two-volume herbarium of M.J.E Sicard who harvested the plants in the French countryside in the year 1900.

A herbarium (or herbier in French) is a collection of dried plant specimens preserved together in a book to be used as a reference, for research and study or for a keepsake of travels.

During our travels in France, we purchased Sicard's wonderful two-volume herbarium and were fascinated by the age of these plants that were collected over 110 years ago, but can still be identified and many grow in our gardens today.

We also appreciated the aesthetic and antique look of these pages with the dried plant silhouetted against the grayish blue background, which we think would make unique décor hanging on your walls--with an interesting back story to tell.

For more information about us, please see our website, BotanicalCollections.com.
