Set of 20 Tulip notecards in a keepsake box with magnetic closure. Tulips were introduced to Europe from Turkey in the sixteenth century. “Tulipomania” reached its height in Holland in the 1630s. During this period, specialists such as Jacob Marrel were commissioned to paint books of tulips and other valuable flowers that served as catalogs of a dealer’s stock or a proud owner’s collection. These dramatic blooms are featured in this box of notecards.
