This box is used by botanists for collecting specimens and keeping them safe until returning from nature to study the items collected. We offer two such vascula: a 19th c. and an 18th c. piece. The 19th c. vasculum is based on an original and the 18th c. version is a reproduction of an existing piece from the late 18th c.
Hemp strapping included, but not attached. Attach it yourself for a custom fitted shoulder strap.
Pictured is the !9th C. vasculum we produced for the movie Master & Commander and
featured in the 2006 Directory of Traditional American Crafts issue of Early American Life Magazine
