A beautiful 19th Century still life of trailling Nasturtiums upon a traditional dark ground.
A popular flower in the Victorian era, Nasturtiums were used in bouquets, table arrangements, and to be eaten. Rich in vitamin C, they were known to help prevent scurvy.
Grown in French Royal gardens and Monets garden in Giverny, they also represented powerful meanings such as victory in conquest. The colour was also an important factor in symbolism; red for passion, courage and strength; yellow for happiness joy and elation; and orange representing energy and creativity.
