Nelly Roberts Vase 364/12

Fittingly, the name Nelly Roberts was immortalised in two orchids of distinction.

The first, Odontoglossum Opheron gx 'Nelly Roberts', now known as Oncidium Opheron gx, is a hybrid of Odontoglossum Ophanto gx x Odontglossum Neron gx, The orchid gained an Award of Merit from the RHS when exhibited in November 1952.

The second, Cattleya Nellie (sic) Roberts gx, a hybrid of Cattleya Bow Bells gx x Cattleya dowiana, was bred around 1948. Cattleya Bow Bells was a very popular hybrid and has been used as a parent of 219 other hybrids to date. It’s likely that this autumn flowering hybrid was the source of the white Cattleya flowers in Queen Elizabeth’s wedding bouquet.

Moorcroft Pottery designer Nicola Slaney frames a pale orchid against a black backdrop at the base of this striking 12-inch vase, as it circles beneath the flaming pinks of Odontoglossum Opheron gx ‘Nelly Roberts’ – a fitting tribute to a lady who faithfully applied her watercolour brush through myriad colours with timeless beauty.
