Gift Guide 2017: 5 Gifts for the Botanical Art Lover

December 19, 2017

Whenever I’m near the Bowery in New York City, I find myself caught in the gravitational pull into the John Derian store on East 2nd Street and, inside, to the table of Penkridge porcelain fruit. I can never bring myself to buy them (too impractical), but if I were to, say, receive them as a gift (hint to husband reading this), I would gladly arrange and rearrange the porcelain peaches and pears to my heart’s content.

Here are five gifts for the botanical art (fruit included) lover in your life.

The Felicity Jones Wild Garden Unglazed Round Vase is made from pressed flowers collected from Petersham Nurseries&#8\2\17; flower garden and placed into clay; £\180 (\$\24\1 USD).
