Old Rose Golden Ophelia

Hi!
I posted this on the Antique Rose forum, but thought I would try here as well. My mom was named for an old HB rose named Golden Ophelia. Does anyone know it? I've found some info on the internet, but nowhere that has it available. Does anyone possibly have cuttings that I could get? I don't have much worth trading yet, but would be willing to work with finding something that the trader wants (I know lots of gardeners, lol).

Mom was born in the Fairmont, NC area, but I have no idea if my grandmother had the rose there (my mom has Alzheimer's and doesn't remember if her mom had the rose or just had seen it somewhere).

That was supposed to be HT rose, for Hybrid Tea.

Sequoia lists it on their availability list:

The Uncommon Rose lists it, but says it is unavailable right now. You can enter your e-mail address and they will e-mail you when it is ready. They ship roses as bands, which are very small, own root roses.

It is a very pretty rose in the photos. I can see why you want it. Good luck in finding it and I hope it brings your mother some joy.
