Keppel, R. 1968 / I. 1969

TB 35″ M

From Keith Keppel’s catalog for 1970: “Sold out last year, only a few to go in 1970. Orbicular-falled plicata of roslyn blue on white with a Smalt blue beard.”

From Melrose Gardens catalog for 1972: “This new beauty boasts of its rounded flaring falls and ruffled domed standards marked with full medium blue on white ground and the unusual bright blue beards. It hasn’t a thing to be shy about. It is at the top of the list of great new plicatas.”
