From Carl Salbach catalog, 1937: CARVED IVORY (Essig 1937). An exquisitely beautiful cream colored iris of fine form size, and growing habit. Easily the most delightful cream colored iris we have ever seen, and a single stalk, displayed at our gardens was one of the most popular of all our iris. Pure cream with deeper heart (rich creamy ivory) and beard of creaamy yellow- all perfectly blended. Perfect branching, and although a W. R. Dykes seedling, Carved Ivory is "different" in form, even to the extent of. having a slight flare to the falls. Parentage seedling x W. R. Dykes. Early midseason. Substance good. 36-inch. $10.00.
(1948) Carved Ivory shows its Dykes parentage by flecking badly for me, but I can't consider this a serious fault when, from a little distance, it shows as one of the most exquisite bits of sculpture ever executed by the hybridist. The very large blossom, of unusually fine texture, is a warm ivory with just a suggestion of lemon around the creamy beard. [A Critical Evaluation of Older Iris, A.I.S. Bulletin 110:55/July 1948].
