New York Botanical Garden

The New York Botanical Garden and Lunt Silversmiths have created a beautiful collection of tableware and decorative accessories inspired by some of the finest examples of botanical art in the Rare Book Collections of the Garden's LuEsther T. Mertz Library. The lovely pieces combine 18th century botanical imagery with a modern sensibility. I have included some of my favorites. Many are priced at under $100.
