These lovely flowers continue the story of Lord Byron, as he wanders through America in search of true love. The Sunflower III, Hibiscus, Daisy II, and Carnation were carved by Sherman Drackett; the Lily and Rose were carved by the artists of Martin Perry Studios.

These prototypes were produced in England's Wimberley Mills. Each one is marked on the bottom with the name of the piece and a number, which indicates the number of the colour sample. Some changes were made before the pieces were issued. Most notably, the prototype Carnation is pink, while the production version is dark red.

 

With one exception, the pieces are in excellent condition. The Rose, however, has a tiny chip on the underside of the lid. The chip is virtually invisible when the lid is in place, and does not detract from the beauty of the piece.
