The Story of the Tulips.
Tulips are originally from the Ottoman Empire (nowadays Turkey). They were imported to the Netherlands for the first time in the 16th century. The tulip became enormously popular during the Dutch golden age. The flower could be seen a lot in paintings and during festivals. The tulips became more and more expensive and even became a way to invest money. In January 1637, tulip bulbs were sold for more than ten times the annual salary of an experienced craftsman, and were worth about as much as an Amsterdam canal house.
These wooden tulips are the perfect plant for bad gardeners. But also for people who like to have tulips all year. These flowers don’t need any water or attention. This long lasting iconic dutch flower is the perfect gift and it can decorate any spot in and around the house.
