A fabulous collection of  pressed flowers and English countryside plants taken from the nature books of Anthony Rich.  He lived in Westwall Road, Streatham Common, South London, at the very beginning of the 19th century, and was an avid and meticulous collector. A postcard I have, which has been sent to the family is postmarked 1907.

 

His plants are beautifully preserved in shades of dark brown to lime green.

Now all are mounted and re-framed in a simple acrylic glazed narrow black frame.  

 

Overall size: 10.5" x 13" (27 cm x 32 cm)
