Decorated in the bright flowers of the Hortus Amoenissimus of Franciscus de Geest (1638-1699), this fabric-covered rigid case is another elegant gift from the Flower Collection: A brightly-coloured home for your glasses
The history of plants, along with making some of their rarest and most precious characteristics more widely-known, has always been an important part of Aboca’s work. ‘Hortus Amoenissimus’, which Franciscus de Geest painted at the end of the 16th century, contains more than two hundred illustrations of flowers. The vivid colours and the graceful style in which each species was depicted is still impressive today. The reproduction of the original manuscript, which is kept in the Central National Library in Rome, was edited and published by Aboca Edizioni.
