Dillenius Lily Round TrayHome
Inspired by the Hortus Elthamensis, which was published in 1732, this very rare book describes exotic plants cultivated by the wealthy, early eighteenth-century apothecary James Sherard (1666-1738) at Eltham, Kent. It was written and illustrated by the German botanist Johann Jacob Dillenius (1684-1747) before he became the first Sheradian Professor of Botany at Oxford in 1734.
This tray is made from FSC certified Scandinavian birch wood andmeaures 38cm across. Perfect for presenting tea-time treats!
