  • Description

    Small print from a series of twelve with goldsmiths designs and grotesques. This print is characterized by a large concave lozenge-shaped panel in the center. Around it two ring bezels in the top corners and two more lozenges in the lower corners are combined with six grotesques figures. Two figures on the top of the page and two figures on the bottom look like sirens. On each side of the central lozenge a bowing figure is depicted which remind most of satyrs.
