The double paper leaf is printed on the recto with a lively illustration of a couple in eighteenth century style costume; the male figure places a kiss upon the hand of the female who holds a fan in her other hand. Signed ‘Louis Morin’.
The verso is printed in monochrome with a diaper of bows and florets and a central cartouche inscribed, ‘With the Compliments of the Carlton Hotel’.
