About this work


Novelty bookmark, roughly in a triangular shape (scalloped hypotenuse) intended to fit over the corner of a page of a book. One side has 3 naked young children (waist upwards) looking at a book. One is playing a pipe. All are surrounded by garlands of pink blossom. The other side bears the text on what looks like a wooden board in front of daisies and an ear of corn on a white background.
