Eric Knowles Comments: A relatively common pattern, derived from a Meissen original and consequently sometimes known as 'The Meissen Onion'. Although the 'proper' name sounds distinctly Oriental, it is actually derived from the common name for the Helichrysum italicum otherwise known as the Italian Strawflower
