Flowers, Dried, From Braehead, StewartonAbout this object
An arrangement of dried flowers from Braehead, Stewarton, Scotland, dated 1888.
There are two different unidentified ferns with three flowers mounted on thick card with a tissue overlay and short inscription. The pink flower is likely a rose, and we have not been able to identify the other flowers.
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.
