    Gorgeous !! Lovely form according to the RHS orchid registrar, Two Cattleya Orange Gem are registered one in 1918 and the other in 1929, both have very different parents, but it is safe to say that the grex is Cattleya for both.

    But from the looks of it, it seems that it has some Rhyncholaelia blood, so my guess is it is Rhyncattleanthe Suzuki's Orange Gem

    This is (most likely) Lc. (Elinor x G. S. Ball) This Orange Gem is 1/2 C. schroderae and 1/2 orange Laelia (now cattleya) harpophylla and cinnabarina. There is one awarded clone, 'Naranja' HCC/AOS, and the clone 'Delight' was published in the Orchid Digest. It is now listed as C. Orange Delight. (it kind of looks like an orange C. schroderae)
