What a great article on Flora! Thanks to all involved.

Going through my archives, I found two additional Shiebler Flora items I did not see in the article or the additional images link. These items are no longer in my inventory, so I unfortunately cannot provide better pictures.

The first is the ice cream fork but in variation #7, the wild rose. The length is 5 3/8". The marks are Shiebler's trademark, STERLING, PAT'D 89, 7.

The second is an apparent parfait spoon in a slight variation of motif #5, the geranium. The length of this is 6 1/4". The marks are the Shiebler trademark, STERLING, and PAT'D 89.

Does anybody have others to share?

How wonderful to notice the pattern variations. Forget-me-not, number 6, seems to have been a much-used pattern.

An Ice Cream spoon

A paper slice, which is 7.375 inches long

It lacks the 6 and instead has 2805.

A new pattern, to me - is it an iris?

They don't look like iris's to me, but some orchids resemble the lower blossoms.

Paphiopedilums. They appear to be nearer them than an iris?
