Cummer Boxwood Earrings
The image on these sterling silver earrings was created with a real impression of boxwood from the Cummer Gardens. The parentage of this specimen dates to 1931 and was planted in Mrs. Cummer’s time. These rare Cummer plant specimens used for the impression cannot be readily purchased. Museum staff has worked over the years to propagate many historic plant species that remain on the property. Boxwoods are used throughout the Italian, English, and Olmsted Gardens.
