About this item

For sale here is a vintage school teaching model of a
HONEY FUNGUS (Armillaria mellea)
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 so these models were used as teaching aids in schools.
This fine mushroom is on a round wooden base with dried moss.
It is a life size model of a mature specimen.
This is Armillaria Mellea also known as honey Fungus, it is widely spread in temperate regions of the Northern hemisphere and is considered edible.
