Roses have been known since ancient times and Cleopatra is said
to have prepared her barge with rose petals' before meeting
Anthony... the Rose designs were inspired both by Cassandra's love
of roses and this epic story. Reading the story of Lord Carnarvon,
the Rosetta stone, of Champollion and his race to read the
hieroglyphics, the Alice letters were born- now a well loved jewel
of Cassandra's Classic Collection.
