This is a rare original 1875 color chromolithograph that depicts over forty different scrollwork designs and border patterns that date back to the 16th century. The green motif near the bottom of the panel actually features the initials of King Henri II of France and his queen consort, Catherine de'Medici.

A unique feature of this illustration, which may be difficult to see in the digital image, is the use of gold ink that not only shimmers when it catches the light but also accentuates some of the finer details which might otherwise be missed.
