Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The text in Fraktur within a heart-shaped plant container, or vase, is in the lower portion of the document. It is surrounded by a profusion of different flowers. The drawing is framed by a decorative border.  This drawing is part of a group of fraktur previously attributed to Johannes Schopp based on a Vorschrift inscribed with his name, but it is now thought that Schopp was more likely the recipient of the Vorschrift.  See FLP 383, 562, and 615 for related examples.
