Botanical: Amaranthus Cristatus

35.00

FRANCE | 1878

Last winter, we stumbled upon an expansive 19th century collection of French botanical pressings. Each specimen is so thoughtfully displayed and mounted and hand inked in French with the Latin scientific names. Dated 1878, this Amaranthus Cristatus is also known as the common celosia and is part of the Amaranth family (Amaranthaceae ). An edible annual flower that a staple food source served as "boiled greens" in West Africa. This specimen is unframed and will arrive flat packed, but deserves framing for proper archiving and display.
