Hand-drawn; hand-colored; hand-lettered. The text in Fraktur as well as a bunch of roses and a bunch of forget-me-nots are within an oval in the center of the document. Additional text in Fraktur is below it. The oval is enclosed in a richly decorated frame. For another fraktur by this artist, see FLP B-1006.

Small drawings, often lacking inscriptions and referred to as bookmarks by collectors, were given by schoolmasters to their students as rewards for good behavior and scholastic accomplishments.
