The remaining ten (10) drawings are predominantly a flower or multiples of that flower as a cut stem with appropriate leave. Includes various roses, blue anemone, tulips, morning glory,carnations and more. All in rich strong colors. Housed in a 5 1/2" x 9" with plaid boards, an applied leather backstrip with a ribbon string tie. An applied paint decorated paper label on the front cover reads "Christina Potts". Fine work.
