DRIED FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS

We have samples of real flowers from the Ottoman Empire in the form of dried flower arrangements. One super example is an album of dried flowers, called Arz-i Mukaddes Kitabi (The Book of Holy Offerings). It contains dried flowers prepared from the holy lands of Ottoman Palestine, on the occasion of the ceremonies marking the 25th anniversary of Sultan Abdulhamid's accession.
