Description

The illustration on the front shows a young girl in a brown hat, blue cape and knee-length blue dress. She is holding flowers and what looks like a plantpot with a ribbon tied to it. She is standing on stone steps covered in snow, a potted plant behind her. The oil was found to contain: spirits of turpentine, camphor, oil of tar, red thyme and processed fish oil.
