That flower Rosette looks gorgeous like that! Much nicer than blond.
Did you buy it that way?

Clare, they're pretty neat. They were purchased from a local collector. The block on top is an authentic (yet to be disclosed) prototype, the bottom picture is the Swallow. Note the handwriting.

M&D, thanks for the remarks. I try to pace the pics. I also mistakenly said the back was of the butterflies, actually it was the Swallow. The Rosette has the same back with identical writing. I used the undisclosed prototype to highlight that all 3 originated from the studio.

A very unusual & interesting block!
It looks cross between Wild Rose & the molding of Country Roses (without the writing).

I believe you're right about the Wild Rose, it is a variation of the image. Sid seems to like these white florals. To my knowledge, this particular arch mould is not used in any known blocks. The gold trim treatment is also unique, not done since the gold PQs in the picture.

Woah, I wish this was mine, but I tagged this pic from Sid's Instagram!! Presumably, it's one of many one offs displayed in the studio. Helen, an iron version would totally rock! If the pic was shot at an angle we would see the dimensional profile.
