This is 'Mme Jean Sisley' from Dubreuil, not 'Jean Sisley' from Bennett.

Vintage offered two candidates for this rose. I assume this is the one they got from Antique Rose Emporium. I got the other one, which they got from Ruth Knopf. I just posted photos of the latter for comparison.

Does anyone know from where Ruth Knopf got her 'Princesse de Sagan'?

All I know is what I read in the catalog. Gregg Lowry or Phillip Robinson might know more. I imagine if they knew Ruth Knopf's source they would have listed that in the catalog instead. Maybe that means she found and identified it? I looked on the Friends of Vintage Roses site and they don't have a curator for the tea roses right now, but maybe someone there could help.

Thanks. It would be interesting to know the provenance of this rose. It does bear some resemblance in form to some of the early catalogue illustrations.

This would in fact be 'Mme. Jean Sisley', the white Tea from Dubreuil and not Bennett's liac pink 'Jean Sisley'.

Trying to identify a couple yellow teas I purchased several years ago. I believe I have Isabella Sprunt. My blooms ball after a very heavy rain. Do yours? If not, ideas? Lovely plant and superb flowers.

I don’t think my ‘Isabella Sprunt’ balls at all.
You might like to take a look at the Australian foundling “Jane Cranston” for some name clues in the main page and Members Comments.

'Alexander Hill Gray', although more double, is a similar colour to 'Isabella Sprunt' and it balls. Maybe check that variety out as well.

I don't think "Jane Cranston" and Isabella Sprunt have enough petals to ball much.

It must be Alexander Hill Gray then. That was one of the other varieties I was considering. Many thanks.

Digdahlias, is it possible to post photos of your mystery rose? It might be something else altogether.

I had two little blooms - the rest of them balled the other day after a rainstorm. Here’s the best image I could get this evening.
Plants I was looking at a few years ago include Alexander Hill Grey, Blumenschmidt, Isabella Sprunt among others. I have another yellow tea that doesn’t ball - I’ll post that pic later so not to confuse anything.

It would be nice to have side views of the receptacle (the bit under the bud) and the prickles, for both roses. It might be worth looking at Souvenir de Pierre Notting for this one - it can ball. The other one is pretty.

Hopefully I’ve captured more info in this photo.
Thank you to everyone for your input.

This is my other mystery tea that doesn’t ball. Blooms are lighter and more lemon yellow that’s the other.

Alexander Hill Gray is a thornless rose, so it's a useful feature to rule this variety in or out as a contender.
