This is another antique weight from my personal collection. The time has come for me to find new homes for the collection that has been so close to my heart. We have already sold twelve of our carpet grounds to a museum. We have several left that we will list. This lovely white wheatflower with blue spots sits atop a gently curving stem flanked by two trios of ribbed leaves. The wheatflower boasts two alternating tiers of ribbed. blue spotted petals with a large ocher and white star honeycomb at its nexus. The bloom is grandly created by two pairs of leaves on either side and a trio of leaves directly above. It is on a clear ground.
Diameter: 2 15/16 inches.

Circa: The Classis Period (1845 -1860).
Provenance: L. H. Selman, Ltd.
