Glass flowers at Harvard's Museum of Natural History

Here at Clara Francis HQ we are surrounded by glass beads, in ever hue and could say we are a little bit obsessed with glass...
We think these glass botanical models are amazing. They were made in the Blaschka's studio near Dresden, Germany from 1887 to 1936 for Harvard's Botanical Musuem.
