This Botanical Band consists of “wheels” of flowers that overlap. Each “flower wheel” has a four-“leaved” center from which radiates many thin, curved lines. May be seen with a large, distinct chrysanthemum bloom, similar to Botanical Band 17, overlapping the “wheels.” The example was seen on overglaze Chinese porcelain.
