Vintage seed packets on canvas

54 x 57cm


A collection of original, vintage French flower seed packets arranged on painted canvas with a cut 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 1940ā€™s and feature hand-drawn illustrations. They were an unusual flea market find.

The geometric arrangement provides contrast to the floral images and each seed packet has been cut in half and raised with its respective counterpart placed below to form a colourful pattern.
