Design History:
This design was part of the original series of forty-eight designs completed by October 1931 but is not currently known from later printings.

The silhouette of wf3 is also used as the background element in a supplemental set design, wfx6. The overlay element in wfx6 is a new rose composition which also reincorporates the central blossom of wf3.

An additional rose design not present in the earlier versions of the principal series was added in a later printing. (See links below.)

Species Illustrated:
