Few examples of the present composition are known. The texts listed below illustrate the celebrated example formerly in the New York Historical Society Collection. Unlike the fully blown upright composition shown here, this rose is viewed from the side. See Paul Hollister, Glass Paperweights of the New-York Historical Society, New York, 1974, p. 61, colour plate 43; and Paul Jokelson, One Hundred of the most important Paperweights, London, 1955, p. 84-85, colour plate 35; also see The Charles William Gaylord Collection, L.H. Selman, Santa Cruz, 6 July 1995, lot 11 for an extensively exhibited similar rose and single bud weight listed as 'extremely rare'.
