It depicts two seated people with a house in the background. The medallion elements, roller-printed in two shades of cream, are adorned with festoons of flowers and flanked on the left by a narrow stripe of the same color and style. The right side of paper has been torn away. The flowers and scenes are roller-printed in red, cream, two blues, blue-green, two greens, black, two pinks and two browns on beige ground.
