Picture shows two flower-shaped prints of “eight petals” illustrated with vignettes of buildings, landscape views, and portraits arranged in a circle of images nested within an outer circle of images. Very tiny rectangular and triangular shaped cut-outs line the open folds of the print. The jagged-edged prints are accompanied by an envelope printed in cursive letters in red ink reading: “Rose of Philadelphia.” The print in the left also contains two images of a pink rose bud with green petals as “petals” on its upper edge.
