Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The initials are within a circle in the center of the document, and the alphabet is along the lower edge. The letters are written in block form similar to an embroidery pattern. In the upper center is a crown. In the upper corners are two inward facing birds perched on leafy stems of flowers. In the lower portion of the document are various leafy stems of flowers, including tulips. The entire document is framed by a decorative border.  The flowers and leaves show the influence fo the work of artist and schoolmaster Johann Adam Eyer.
