Our John James Audubon Parakeet Vase expands when filled with water to be the perfect complement to flowers. Without danger of breaking, chipping, or scratching, our clever, collapsible and elegant vase is a celebration of innovative design with a fool proof way to dress up a bouquet. Adapted from the wonderful illustration of the Carolina Parakeet 1825, in the Museum's collection.
In preparation for his landmark masterpiece, The Birds of America (1827-39), naturalist and painter John James Audubon executed a series of 435 dazzling watercolor paintings of life-size birds based on his direct observations in the wild. They are the jewel in the crown of New-York Historical's unmatched collection of Auduboniana.
