A LARGE BOTANICAL MODEL BY DEYROLLE

Hand painted papier maché, paper and wood on a square wood stand.

Height 43 cm ( 17 in )

These didactic models of plants were in great demand in the 19th century due to their scientific accuracy and were bought by Universities worldwide as aids to teaching.

Jean-Baptiste Deyrolle opened a natural history and taxidermy shop at 23 Rue de la Monnaie in Paris in 1831 and it was run by his son Achille Deyrolle for many years. Emile Deyrolle (1838-1917), grandson of Jean-Baptiste and a naturalist took over the business in 1866. In 1881 Deyrolle moved to 46 Rue du Bac where it can still be found. Sadly on the 1st February 2008 a fire devastated the building and destroyed most of their stock and archival examples. However, some specimens were saved such as this extremely large flower.
