Cactus Blossom square tray

Cactus Blossom square tray

We are introducing square trays for the first time in the 2017 collection! Offered in two sizes: 8 inches and 6 inches square.
This magnificent Cactus Blossom print is from the text “The Cactaceae: Descriptions and Illustrations of Plants of the Cactus Family,” by by N.L. Britton and J.N. Rose (1913). The Cactaceae monograph was written by the American botanists Nathaniel Lord Britton and Joseph Nelson Rose and published in multiple volumes between 1919 and 1923. It is still considered quite influential and remains a cornerstone of cactus taxonomy.

In the potichomania process, the glass acts as both a foundation and protective finish, saving the step of varnishing. The original intent was to recreate Greek and Etruscan vases by simulating rare and expensive Sevrés porcelain.
