About this object

An arrangement of dried flowers from Notherhill (?) Scotland, prepared by Mary B. Dunlop in 1907.

An arrangement of pressed flowers with small rose bud in the centre attached to two branches of leaves. There is an unidentified fern and orange blossoms with leaves. To the right a small bunch of blue flowers, possibly forget-me-nots. Sitting on top of the rose is a sprig of heather.

These flowers were accessioned alongside a large number of clothing and accessories believed to have been owned by Martha Blue (neé Brown) whose family, and her husband's family, emigrated from Scotland.
