From AIS Bulletin #150, July 1958: GLITTERING AMBER (Palomino X sister to June Meredith). Glittering, tangerine-bearded apricot-amber with lace. H.M. 1957. $25.00. Mission Bell.
From Rainbow Hybridizing Gardens catalog 1963: GLITTERING AMBER (Hamblen '57) M-34". A stunning apricot-amber that fairly glitters. Has so much color, personality & charm it has been winning awards for years; was on the JC list in '58 & reached the AM in '59; in '60 it was awarded the HM in Florence, Italy. A very scarce item, I suggest ordering immediately if you want this. Very wide of parts with lots of lace and ruffling. A real knockout. Palomino X sib. to June Meredith. Regularly $5.00; on $10 order $3.95; on $25 order $3.50.
