Vintage seed packets on canvas

41 x 56cm


A collection of original, vintage French flower seed packets mounted on painted canvas offering a three-dimensional element. The items are mounted behind glass within a white, wooden frame and are part of a small series.

The seed packets themselves date back to the 1940’s and feature colourful, hand-drawn illustrations. They were an unusual flea market find.

The geometric arrangement and rectangular shape of the vintage packets aims to provide contrast to the organic floral forms, and the three-dimensional nature of the upper row casts soft shadows below.
