At top, a horizontal panel with a row of flowers, including a lily at right and a buttercup at left. Below, a frieze with a landscape, with three couples gathered around a tree at right and a windmill and steeple seen in the background at left. From a series of twelve plates with rows of flowers above friezes with landscapes, etched by Cochin, published by Balthazar Moncornet in Paris in 1645, and dedicated to the goldsmith, Jean de Leins. The prints are executed in a combination of etching, for the landscape, and burin, for the flowers.
