Vintage Jung - Koch - Quentell "Wild Rose" Biology Classroom Wall Chart
Vintage pull-down canvas-paper wall chart of Rosa dumetorum / Heckenrose (Wild Rose family) used for instructional and teaching purposes. This particular teaching aide on canvas was manufactured by Jung-Koch-Quentell and printed in Germany. I believe the age of these prints range from the 1950's-1970's. This particular wall chart measures 32 1/2" (W) X 44 1/2" (L) not including the wooden roll up dowels.
Botanical wall charts have a history dating back to the 1800s. They were created during a time of educational reform in Germany. The first wall charts were created in the 1820’s, mostly for use in primary schools. In the 1840s, the student population increased 108% while the number of teachers increased only 40%. Wall charts made it possible for teachers to show supporting visuals in large classrooms filled with students.
From 1850 to 1890, botanical wall charts became very popular with the advent of color lithography. Contributing to the popularity of wall charts by Jung, Koch, Quentell specifically, is their absence of text. Because they do not contain text, the charts do not have to be translated. This makes the charts by Jung, Koch, Quentell very versatile.
The condition of this wall chart teaching aid is very good + overall. The colors are vibrant and bright, and the back ground is quite dark as no fading. There are no large tears or rips or bad areas of damage. This is a real nice wall chart in terms of condition and subject matter. There is fraying on the edges and a few smaller creases and fine tiny areas of color loss (white specs) but very minimal. Possible there are creases where it meets the wooden holder, but not seen. It's been stored rolled, so the condition is consistent with that type of storage but I believe it's as nice as it can be considering it been stored rolled up. It's been stored in a dry environment, however is dusty and will need cleaning if ever matted and framed.
These wall charts have become very popular with designers and used as home decor. The bold colors and subject matter make these unique and vibrant examples suitable for display anywhere.
