Name/Title

Flowers, Dried, From Braehead, Stewarton

About 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.
