R. Brendel Lily flower model, c 1890
Beautiful anatomical flower model by Brendel of the Lily. This model was described in the Brendel catalogue as Lilium Martagon. It is an enlarged botanical model of three times. The ovary is halved crosswise and has to be removed with a pistil. The colours of this model are very lively, but it is dusty. The top sheet shows a tear. The lilium model arises from a ebonized turned wooden stand with a blue label with names of the lily in different languages.
