Apollo - Chinese Lantern duo ~

Post  Cat-a-lat on Tue 12 Jun - 0:02

Found this apollo duo today - I think the flower is abutilon - also known as flowering maple or chinese/paper lantern ( https://www.google.co.nz/search?q=abutilon&hl=en&prmd=imvns&source=lnms&tbm=isch&ei=v9rVT7DYJaqhiAeboIWNAw&sa=X&oi=mode_link&ct=mode&cd=2&ved=0CFMQ_AUoAQ&biw=1024&bih=623 ) Whatever it is, I couldn't (or didn't!) see it in the gallery.


Would also help if I put the photo up....

I have this pattern on an Apollo cup, but the flowers are yellow instead of orangy red.

not too terrible, perhaps try taking it from a little further back- I don't think phones really do macro, though these days phone cameras are getting pretty good, so I could of course be wrong. Nice to see the different colour anyway :-) Smile

*coughs* I was a long way back, I think it didn't like being cropped so much .....?
Heh I took 15 photos and deleted 12 as they were totally unacceptable!
The three I kept didn't come up to standard, but it's a big learning curve atm What a Face

lol, at the least a very fanciful version, I can detect a very faint resemblance to the open flower of the chinese lantern so who knows. My 6 year old broke my saucer Sad

or I might have listed it seeing that there's a $15 bid on that auction!

Heck I didn't even notice that bid, as I was too absorbed with the pattern!
It isn't a common pattern and 6 year olds have no conception of things such as saucers being treasures ...... I love you

she broke one of my Echo bowls in exactly the same manner! (being a big girl and getting her own snacks - right on the edge of the table/bench). I've had a bad run with Echo, I may list those some time before any more get broken lol In the interests of preservation of course!

Here is the pattern of Kat's cup with the orange flowers, again only genuine ironestone. They look almost like echinacea flowers  sunny
