These specimens are displayed in a folding hinged pine box (which is newly enforced using pine frames). Each species is labelled using handwritten detail, collaged together in a unique and highly artistic manner. With some vibrant examples perfectly formed in this collection as shown.

Completely solid in structure and form, aged naturally across the surface showing loss of detail which is shown. A naturally aged object which has stood the test of time, so please expect age related wear as the photos aim to show however it is exceedingly difficult to photograph all the areas on this piece. Therefore, we strongly suggest reviewing all the photos provided as part of this advert and propose questions where sections / condition is unclear to avoid disappointment when purchasing.
