Group of Botanical Models

Florence, Italy

Late 19th Century

With Paper Labels "A. Dall'Eco FIRENZE Viale Principe Eugenio 14-30"

Hand painted papier maché, paper and wood on turned wood stands.

These didactic models of plants were in great demand in the 19th century due to their scientific accuracy. They were bought by Universities in Italy as aids to teaching from Alberto Dall'Eco who was a dealer in scientific and teaching tools and materials; active in Florence in the late 19th/early 20th centuries. The Department of Biology at the University of Florence still hold a collection of these specimens bought from Dall'Eco
