Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The main body of text in German script is flanked by two male figures holding walking sticks. Above the text are two women, each of whom is feeding a tulip to a large parrot. Flowering vines, rosettes, tulips and ornaments are interspersed throughout. In a different hand, between the two female figures, are notations regarding the death of Anna Margräta Willeman and William Bärtges, presumably her husband, added later.
