From the MST Collections: The Mushroom Models: Tricholoma albo-brunneum
The model below is part of the MST's collection of mushroom models. This collection once belonged to a single individual and they bear the stamp of the owner and his location in West Berlin. The objects are from the 1920s or 1930s based on the text and type face. The translations from old German were completed by one of our members over the last year. Please note that many of the mushrooms in this collection have had their classifications change over time. Many that were once considered as edible are now classified as poisonous, and the translated text may no longer be considered accurate in modern terms.
Tricholoma albo-brunneum Pers. Edible.
Cap: brown, fleshy, flat, convex as it ages, up to 0,07 (sic) wide. At a young stage it is sticky, but later dry with fine stripes going from the middle outward. Gills: close together, white, later brown. Stem: thick, up to 0,07 (sic) high, scaly near the top, whiteish, turning brownish near the ground. Often hollow in maturity.
