Vintage French Pressed Botanical
Once upon a time, aristocratic women made it their hobby to collect leaves and wildflowers that struck their fancy so they could press them on large, sturdy pieces of paper. They’d then identify and label them, amassing stacks until they could be bound into a giant book (can we revive this pastime, please?). Today, these prints make for one-of-a-kind wall art that’ll look lovely in a living room gallery situation, bathroom, or kitchen. While the frames are new, each print is an original, carefully restored by a French artist to its former glory. Mix ‘em in with your modern decor or pair with something with a little history like these pretty French confit pots.
**All vintage items are final sale. Each botanical is a one-of-a-kind, vintage pressed botanical. Each vintage botanical will vary from piece to piece. The purchased vintage item can not be preselected."
