Catalogue Note

As Martin Eidelberg has noted, the heraldic Poinsettia design exploded onto the scene around 1909-1910 with multiple models in three varying sizes.  The present example, representing the middle size, is distinguished by its striking cobalt blue floral centers anchoring the heavily saturated range of violet and crimson petals.  This shade is paired with an elegant and early base design displaying aqueous swamp flowers which sprout from the lower register.
