The Glass Flowers, formally The Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants. 1880-е годы

Пыталась найти фото не научных моделей, а декоративных цветов, но нашла только один букетик. Очень жаль, что эти уникальные мастера не занимались практически декоративным искусством. Я собираю картинки стеклянных и фарфоровых цветов (буду очень рада, если у кого-то найдутся хорошие фото или линки), но ничего даже отдаленно похожего не видела- равных им по мастерству нет и не было.

The Glass Flowers, formally The Ware Collection of Blaschka Glass Models of Plants, is a famous collection of highly-realistic glass botanical models at the Harvard Museum of Natural History at Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

This unique collection of over 3,000 models was created by glass artisans Leopold Blaschka and his son, Rudolph. The commission began in 1886, continued for five decades, and the collection represents more than 830 plant species.

They were commissioned by Professor George Lincoln Goodale, founder of Harvard's Botanical Museum, for the purpose of teaching botany, and financed by Goodale's former student, Mary Lee Ware and her mother, Elizabeth Ware. Over 3000 models, of 847 different plant species, were made.
