Mounted on an oval shaped canvas covered stretcher, real dried leaves and flowers are intricately worked in with wicker basketwork , and then originally stabilized with lacquer.
The diorama might originally have been set into a picture frame behind glass, but makes a very beautiful if delicate wall hanging display as is.

Measures 21 inches tall x 18 wide . In good stable condition.
