In the late 19th century Robert Brendel and his son Reinhold Brendel produced beautiful and accurate models of enlarged flowers first in Breslau and later in Grunewald-Berlin Germany. Usually, the models were made of papier mâché, but with other materials added to give detail and texture: wood, cotton, rattan, pulp cane, glass beads, feathers and gelatine. These were sold to technical universities teaching practical botany.
View our meticulous, colorful replica of an educational flower model made with the approval of the Royal Herbarium of the Netherlands and used in the 19th Century biology lessons. It features a wood base and reprints of original labels as well as the makers name plaque (R. Brendel).Houzz
