From The Court Of Iris catalog, 1955: CORONATION TAPESTRY (Craig '53) M 36" (Gay Senorita X Joppa Parrot). We consider this one of Mr. Craig's outstanding and important introductions. It is a bi-color involving lilac, brown,purple and green in an indescribable manner. It is a fast increaser and we would certainly not be without it. $10.00
