The folder is made of decorative paper with a pattern of central trailing floral vine on a background of diamonds flanked by vertical rods wrapped by leaves and flowers and columns of horizontal stripes. The pattern is block printed in black with blue stenciling on ungrounded paper. Inside the folder is a white sticker or bookplate printed in black with a bonsai tree in a pot and the initials O. P.
