The Pattern used under the mask and to the right belong to The natural sprays group, however the sprigs used are more commonly found with The Garden Rose Group (II.C.14). The pattern to the left is similar to the Ripe Pomegranate pattern, part of the Pine Cone group of patterns (II.C.11). We are unable to locate an exact match of this print and believe it to be unrecorded.
