In a private collection is a spray of lilac, which is really lovely. It also comes with a spray of a five petaled flower that has stamens in the middle made with tiny silk fly-ties in a dark red and light pink. The petals are almost round and are overlapped around a stuffed center - quite a bit like the small white strawberry flowers above.
These items were in the same box as a small wooden box like one in the Edlin box (not pictured on the V&A site) and a partial ring of silk covered cardboard that matches the needle case that is in the Edlin box. I think that the casket was worked in the same school as the Edlin box. Then there are the two lacet posies described above AND a sprig of rosemary made from expanded silk wrapped purl in a dusty green as well as a sheaf of wheat that is made by the gilt bullion wrapped technique that makes the animals above as well as the handle of the tape measure.
