Horizontal rectangle. The repeat consists of flower boughs beneath a landscape; a plant, a trellis structure, a thyrsos, a vase containing a plant. A chain consisting of two intertwined waved boughs, connects each motif with its neighbor at right, and with the staggered motif in the row beneath it. One repeat is nearly entirely shown and part of another.
