Vintage Danish educational seed chart beautifully illustrated by Ellen Backe. Signed and dated 1948. This chart is numbered IV in a series of six hanging wall charts originally commissioned by seed merchants. Several years ago, a very large consignment of unopened sets still in their original brown wrapping paper was cleared from storage and dispersed throughout the world of antiques dealers. Some sets were mounted on hard board as was this example, and was intended to be hung from the two top-center perforated holes with a string loop. Others were available on printed paper and not mounted.
These charts are visually compelling for their illustrated detail and their soft color palette. They are simply beautiful.
Condition: Excellent and ORIGINAL with only a slight hint of yellowing around the edges.
18 ¾” x 26 ½”.
PLEASE NOTE: Shipped flat.
