From Cooley's catalog 1969: ORINDA (Gaulter, '68) Each $15.00. A crisp, ruffled blend of rose and tan, from the unusual cross of Melodrama and Mademoiselle. This latter parent produced Claudia Rene; which in turn has sired a vast number of Gaulter's best and most distinct things. Orinda has smooth hafts of copper-brown on crisp, wavy falls of rose-lilac; the standards are ruffled and closed, a blend of tan and rose. Beard is orange-brown. 36 inches.
