Full Description

TB ML 36″

From Schreiner’s Catalog 1949:”A novel plicata. In garden effect a bright waxy yellow with an intriguing alabaster white blaze on the falls and soft tan stitching to further captivate one. A gaily marked plicata done in such a clear cut manner that the contrast of the colors and markings are highly expressive. Afar it carries as a yellow, closer a bitoned yellow with deep golden standards and white bordered yellow falls, close up as an attractive pllcata.”

From Cooley’s Gardens catalog for 1950: “Actually a yellow Plicata along the lines of Tiffanja, but with less of the Plicata pattern and a more yellow and white contrast. The falls carry a central patch or ‘blaze’ of almost pure white. The stitchings are soft brown. A very colorful clump.”
