I don’t know about you, but I have a great fondness for root vegetables. I love to eat them and I think they just look cool, too. Apparently New York City artist John Derian who turned a series of meticulously detailed 19th century French botanical prints into a series of handsome yet whimsical trays, agrees with me.
In addition to this carrot platter, there’s a kohlrabi, beet, turnips, and more in the series. Each one is a lovely potential accent to your table or your wall.The prints are decoupaged and topped with glass, and backed with felt. The trays are food safe, but remember not to immerse them completely in water.
Originally each tray ran $188.00, but they are currently on sale at the New York Botanical Gardens Gift Shop for just $112.80 each. Oh, and if you have a membership, the price on each goes down to a mere $101.52.
