This pattern is frequently confused with Dugan's Single Flower, but they are NOT the same pattern and are not variants of each other: they are distinctly different. Single Flower Framed has a rayed interior (sharp rays)[see sff-interior], a marie with a frame motif, and the exterior pattern with 3 sets of single five-petal flowers on straight stems with two buds and leaves set against stippled wavy fan-like frames.
The key factors are:
-Frame motif in the marie
-Straight stems on the flowers
The other pattern (Single Flower) has a plain interior, 3 open flowers in the marie and wavy stems on the flowers.
