Narcissus III


Glassmaker: Crooks, Robert S.




Pink, dark pink, dark yellow, white, and black hand-blown glass. The flower containers are two flattened ovoid buds with an opening at the top, supported by tubular stalks, flanked by two long pointed leaves, one with a kink near to its tip, rising from four anulets on top of a circular, straight-sided, hollow base. The pink buds are striped in dark pink, and each has two oval black spots, a black band round the mouth, and a black anulet at the top of the white stem. One stem is taller than the other. The dark yellow leaves have black stripes. The base, and the four anulets round the base of the stems are black.
