Dried ferns and seed wings
This a framed piece with two dried arrangements of ferns and plant parts. The framing is recent and the arrangement is typical of late 1890's. The second and third photo's are of the folder that these were found in. The inscription in part says - Made of lace mark, and the wings of the seed of the French cotton. The borders are from the spahin (?) of the mountain cabbage palm. The ferns are gathered from different parts of Jamaica. The inscription includes the latin specie names. A copy of the inscription is included. The dimension given is the diameter of each arrangement. The overall framed dimension is 12 by 19.5 inches. See also my item art006 for a grouping of three similar fern arrangements. Shipping cost is actual and is quoted at time of purchase.
