FAIRLIGHT (J. Nelson, 70) VL. 36" Each $25.00. Our picture on the front cover is an excellent likeness of this frilly, frothy, glittering rich gold and creamy white beauty. The standards, style arms and beard are all a uniform deep gold, as is the underside of the falls. These are creamy white in the center and are rimmed with a band of rich yellow. The upright, closed standards and ruffled flaring falls complete this gorgeous creation. No. 65-62-1. [Cooley's Iris, 1970].
