Grapevine Botanical Poster - Vitis vinifera
There are between 5,000 and 10,000 varieties of Vitis vinifera grapes, and grapes have been cultivated by humans as far back as 3,500 BC - the first written accounts of grapes and wine are found in the Epic of Gilgamesh. Eaten fresh, dried as raisins or as juice or wine, the grape has been beloved by humans probably since the first time it was tasted. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.
Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
