Didactic botanical model, in chalk and papier-mâché, by the German company Brendel, end of the 19th century.

Founded in 1866 by Robert Brendel, this company immediately stood out for the excellent quality of its botanical models that could be disassembled, and that were sold to schools all over Europe through a rich catalogue that grew to include 200 different kinds of plants.
