Advertising pamphlet/broadside, printed on both sides. One side is a series of steel engraved images showing garden elements constructed from cork for Ferneries, Garden ornaments, hanging baskets, glass domes with plant specimens etc. The other side provides illustrations of the product with an extract about cork by Shirley Hibberd from Floral World and a series of testimonials. Now a single flat item, but originally a folded pamphlet. Fascinating illustrated item showing design for garden element in the high Victorian era. A little worn at edges and a short tear across part of one of the original old fold lines but still a very good and quirky catalogue of items for the garden.
