"Does anyone have a pic of DOTTED SWISS...."

I don't know of a photo extant, Laurie, but I can describe it for 
you.  DOTTED SWISS was a vivid plicata of violet-blue on white (the 
registration data says blue on white) with a certain amount of 
brownish tone especially in the haft area.  I recall the beard being 
dark, perhaps brownish infused violet.  For its 1956 date it was a 
pretty darned good flower.  The pedigree included Wambaliska, Jake 
and Flora Zenor, a tangerine-bearded bicolor of pink and violet, 
making it particularly interesting genetically.
