From AIS Bulletin #321 April 2001 Introducing DESIGN IN CANTALOUPE (Niswonger '01) Sdlg BB 62-97: Champagne Junior X Electrique. BB, 25" (64 cm), M. This is close to an orange amoena but the standards are not white but more of an ivory. Perhaps there is a slight infusion of apricot since the midrib has a pinkish-apricot color. The falls are more of a buffy orange and the style arms have a touch of apricot. It has a nice orange beard. An interesting color combination I think you will enjoy. $30.00. Cape Iris.
