Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The three opening words are written in prominent Fraktur letters. The first letters of each word are particularly ornate with leafy stems of flowers, rosettes, and calligraphic flourishes. Beneath the first line are an additional two words of this unfinished text. In the lower left corner is the outline of two rectangular frames. The entire document is enclosed by a decorative border. The document appears to be a practice piece or unfinished work.
