Picus Brass Herbarium
Manufactured in Japan, this herbarium adds a romantic touch to any desk or bedside table. Dried flowers can be placed inside the glass dome, and are supported by the bright brass stand. This piece is a nod to eighteenth century plant specimen collection and the human desire to preserve what is ephemeral. Includes a brass tag that can be twisted around your "specimen".
The brass stand will patina over time, it’s appearance and texture will change with use.
Founded in 2009, Tokyo-based Picus specializes in creating brass items for everyday use. Fascinated by the transformation of brass over time, Picus products are meant to grow and mature with their owner.

Brass will naturally patina over time. Oil and air will naturally darken this piece and make it shinier. This is part of its natural beauty. Do not use chemicals to clean. If exposed to water or moisture for long periods of time, it may cause the metal to change color quicker or spot.
