In the 19th century, there was a great demand for these didactic models of plants in universities worldwide. Owing to their accurate representations of the scientific structures, they were widely used as aids to teaching. Some of these were acquired from Alberto Dall'Eco, a Florentine dealer in scientific educational materials during the late 19th to the early 20th centuries.
A number of similar specimens is still extant in the Department of Biology at the University of Florence and University of Aberdeen Zoology Museum.
