A fantastic antique pop up anatomical diagram of a cow. This has multiple layers presenting the inner working of the bovine body within. It was lithographed by Chas. Hart & Sons of New York and copyrighted by A. Gardenier in 1896. It is constructed of five full-size colour plates, the last of which contains about a dozen smaller fold-out flaps revealing the baby calves within. Each of the plates depicts a different anatomical system, including the outer physical appearance and "anatomical divisions", the muscular system, the circulatory system, the skeletal system, and lastly the digestive system along with the vital and reproductive organs. The different parts of the digestive system and vital organs each consist of small flaps that fold-out to reveal the parts located behind. There is an accompanying key to identify all the parts.

These illustrations are particularly charming. They are French in origin. It is in great condition Everything is intact and working as should.

Initially inspired by the interior at The Mint in Rye (our 15th century holiday let in Rye, East Sussex) and requests to purchase items by clients while staying, we decided to start sourcing and selling so people could do just that.

Based between London and East Sussex we have built up a network of specialist sources that we pull from to create the unique edit that is The Mint in Rye.  We offer a mix of vintage textiles, primitive furniture, curios, first edition books, vintage film posters and antique carved oak.  These are not chosen for their age, but very much for their aesthetic appeal.  The visual still remains true to The Mint interior style, but has broadened to include vintage elements that have the same unique view point.

To view the collection, please contact Barrie on +44 (0)7714 764708.  Dependant on the pieces you are interested in, they may be in East Sussex or in London.
