This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.

Maxis "Lost & Found" #26
(Nightlife REQUIRED!)

Thanks to Havelock for this finding.

This is a decorative Floral Centerpiece that was hidden in the Nightlife EP.
It has never been visible in the catalog, but it could be seen in game (in the "Fresh Rush Grocery", Downtown). Afterwards, when OFB was released, the Floral Centerpiece was completely wiped off; nowadays, the original centerpiece can be seen in the Fresh Rush Grocery only by users that don't have any newer EP than NL, or using the "Up2NL" game from the BaseGameStarter.

Maxis left in the game packages not only the mesh, but also the textures for 4 different flowers and 5 different vases (well, the black vase is quite ugly, but don't blame me ).
I've rebuilt the missing parts of the package, so to make this object and its recolours appear in the catalogue in all their glory .

You will find it in: Buy Mode -> Decorative -> Plants

NOTE: the original object was 2-tile wide; I reduced it to 1 tile only, and therefore if you put it near a wall, the most external leaves might intersect the wall; anyway, the peculiar shape of this flower arrangements suggest to place it along the walls, not perpendicular to it, so no graphical glitch should arise.

Important: Regardless the compatibility icons you may find near the download link, the NIGHTLIFE expansion pack is REQUIRED!

Such a lovely flower arrangement! I'm surprised Maxis left it out. Thank you, Havelock, for finding it and Numenor for re-creating and sharing with us.

Whoa! This is much more attractive than any of the other flower vases Maxis has given us. I wonder why they left it out? Anyway, thanks for fixing it for us!

Thanks Numenor, I agree with everyone, this is a great plant. Now to be enabled and buyable in my game for free, Yay! You have to pay for it at TSR.
