Artist, Caroline Maria Applebee’s tiger lily (watercolour on paper. 23.4 x 18.8 cm. 1820), painted with a swooping damselfly, is really quite something. Two stems of vivid-orange tiger lily flowers in bud and in bloom, featuring curved petals speckled with boysenberry dark spots, almost look as if they are lying on a table in front of you.
The Moorcroft designer takes this exquisite botanical artistry to another level, as tiger lilies rise from the base of the vase on their long, strappy stems, in tight-lipped buds and various blooming stages. Virgin-white buds open with their rich-plum speckles folding over amber cups to join Applebee’s vivid-orange full bloom complete with the plant’s notorious curled back petals, dark spots and magnificent six stamens to create an exotic display of colour. If that was not enough, airborne damselflies captured with Applebee’s stylised pastel, cone-shaped wings, swoop and glide in to the smörgåsbord of Lilium delights.
