Print from a series of six with goldsmith's designs in blackwork. This print shows designs for three elements of goldsmith's work, placed in a seascape with fantastical water creatures. In the center an oval design for a case or pendant is presented. It is surrounded by a slim cartouche made up out of leaves and masks. On the top of the page, two figures sprout forward from the plant shoots. They each hold up a bezel design. On the bottom of the page, a seascape is shown with fantastical water creatures and sirens.
