This gorgeous 1930s electroplated English elm leaf is wonderful.
The detail is fantastic. The real leaf's veins, stem and crinkly edges are all true to life.
Purchased in the summer, I have been waiting to hear the fall of the conkers to bring this beauty out.
Check out the detail. Amazing.
This is an interesting and iconic because according to the Wildlife Trust...
"Mature English elms were once common on the rich, farmed soils of middle England, but are now rarely found as trees and are more common as hedgerow shrubs. This decline is a likely result of the ravaging effects of a recent wave of Dutch elm disease which has affected all of the UK's elms, killing many mature trees and preventing new trees from growing. Despite its name, the English may well have been introduced into the UK during the Bronze Age, or may only be native in Southern England".
