Langenthal Botanical Plate

This plate shows Cassia angustifolia, which is the botanical name for one of the plants in the Senna family. Cassia angustifolia is native to tropical africa, but is grown in cultivation in Egypt and some aprts of Asia. An infustion of the root from the plant is well known as a natural purgative.

The plate carries the Langenthal mark and the date for 1952. There is also a mark "Siegfried MCMLIII". I suspect, but cannot be certain, that it was produced as a promotional piece for the Siegfried company, a Swiss manufacturer of drug materials.
