    • 1963, Margery Allingham, chapter 3, in The China Governess[1]:
      Sepia Delft tiles surrounded the fireplace, their crudely drawn Biblical scenes in faded cyclamen blending with the pinkish pine, while above them, instead of a mantelshelf, there was an archway high enough to form a balcony with slender balusters and a tapestry-hung wall behind.
    • 1973, Patrick Millington Synge, In search of flowers
      An interesting cyclamen was also found here with dark rounded unmarbled leaves, but unfortunately without flowers []
