About this item

For sale here is a vintage school teaching model of a
DEATHCAP MUSHROOM (Amanita Phalloides)
Made in the Czech Republic in the 1960's/70's
We have been lucky enough recently to meet a dealer in Prague who clears schools and colleges for a living, so we have been fortunate enough to buy several sets of these fantastic mushrooms from him we have multiples of some models but we want to clarify that these are genuine vintage 1960's teaching aids and not reproductions.
Foraging is considered a bit of a national pastime in the Czech Republic with families often mushroom picking together, obviously education is vital to avoid picking the wrong mushrooms sp these models were used as teaching aids in schools.
This fine mushroom is on a square wooden base with dried moss.
It is a life size model of a mature specimen.
This is Amanita Phalloides also known as the Deathcap mushroom, as it's name suggests it is one of the more deadly poisonous species of mushroom, with just half a mushroom containing enough toxin to kill an adult.
