Tulip Botanical Poster - Tulipa gesneriana
During the Dutch Golden Age, tulips experienced a meteoric rise in popularity as a status symbol of wealth. They became the basis for an entire economy in what was known as “tulip mania” between 1634 and 1637, which led to one of the most bizarre market crashes in history. In terms of modern pricing, a single bulb could be sold for up to 1.5 million dollars. The Garden Tulip is a member of the Lily family, and is still extremely popular worldwide, whether as live plants or cut flowers. 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!
