Lady Mary was an exact and meticulous woman. One of the first distinguished female gardeners and botanists, she collected, recorded and cultivated seeds from all over the world, in turn introducing new specimens to England, which have remained ever since.
Our Beaufort bouquet features the much-loved hydrangea. Star-shaped flowers closely packed together creating huge blowsy pompoms, in an array of velvety hues, from mauves and pinks to chalky parchment tones.
The double French linen surround sees a charming blush pink paired with an elegant candy-stripe.
The Duchesses are printed on Hahnemühle bamboo paper, whose natural warm tones and matt finish enhance the soft textures of the flowers, lending them a delicate, expressive and sensual feel. The eco-friendly paper is acid- and lignin-free, and meets the most exacting requirements in terms of age resistance.
The final flourish is an intricate vintage gold ornate frame, hand-made and bespoke. We feel they deserve no less.
The Duchess of Beaufort is available in three sizes: small (37 x 46cm) / medium (49 x 63cm) / large (61 x 79cm).
