Currently Documented Version Characteristics:
Version I: [no signature] [no seal] [no title-caption in lower margin] (example above)

Design History:
Each supplemental set design is based upon at least one of the designs in the primary series. It consists of two basic parts, the background image and an overlay image. Occasionally, the background image may be enhanced with highlights included on the overlay plates, and here the third color is used on both.

For wfx10, the silhouette of wf30 was used as the background image. However, instead of printing the silhouette in ink, the background has been printed leaving the silhouette as plain paper. Uniquely for the supplemental set, the overlay image is a new combination of two kinds of flowers which are each used in other designs in this series. The major portion of the overlay image is an enlargement of the upper portion of the leftmost flower in wf42. The remaining part is a new composition of another kind of flower.
