Carving to the border which has a lovely softly chamfered aperture slightly off-centre A plethora of deeply carved interlocking foliate shapes of both flora & fauna all form part of one large flowering plant which cradles & perfectly frames the central image all along the left-hand side & top & bottom of the frame A beautiful intertwining vine of Oak leaves & acorns twist gently around the central image & a beautiful butterfly is flying to the top-right, it's a lovely design T.
