The astonishingly beautiful one-of-a-kind Glass Flowers collection has delighted audiences for more than a century. Over fifty years, from 1886 to 1936, Leopold Blaschka and his son, Rudolf, produced 4,300 models representing 780 plant species exclusively for Harvard University. Collection Manager Jennifer Brown will share the history of this internationally acclaimed collection and discuss recent projects.
Presented jointly with the Victorian Society in America: New England Chapter.
