Yard Sale Find

I purchased this begonia at an Amish spring yard sale.

Can anyone identify variety or name?

Thanks.

It's one of the little begonias known as eyelash begonias. I'm trying to remember the name, but doubtless someone here will before I do.

They are so pretty!

The name is probably Begonia boweri 'Tiger Kitten' or perhaps just 'Tiger'.
