Description
Brendel model of Pinus sylvestris. Robert Brendel began in business in Breslau in 1866, making lovely and accurate models of enlarged flowers, and winning medals at major exhibitions: Moscow (1872), Cologne (1890), and Chicago (1893). Following Brendel’s death in 1898, his son Reinhold moved the firm to a suburb of Berlin and won several more exhibition medals.
