Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The text in Fraktur is within a rectangular frame along the lower edge of the document. In the center of the document is a star within a circle. Above it is a star, and below it is a plant container with several tulips. Along the sides are tall flowers with a variety of leaves. The entire document is framed by a decorative border.  This piece is related to the work of Schwenkfelder artist Susanna Heebner and may possibly be by her hand.
