Vine Bee Skeps

Vine Bee Skeps

$ 36.00

Beautifully reproduced bee skeps, produced from an original design found at a Paris flea market. Recreated out of preserved honeysuckle vine.
 
Symbolic of yesterdays herb garden. These bee skeps come in 3 sizes, all sizes approximate. They are made out of preserved honeysuckle vine, so care should be taken in the elements (they will last longer if taken inside in the winter).

In colonial times it was not uncommon for herb gardens to be graced with a bee skep here and there, with the hope that bees would make their home and provide the family with honey to be used with their medicinal herbs.
Available in three sizes: Large: 14" x 14" x 21", Small: 6" x 6" x 11.5", Ornament Extra Small: 3.5" x 3.5" x 6.5" (height for each includes 2" loop).
 
Note: These bee skeps are decorative use only.
