20 Description

The main decoration of this sheet is the large silver and golden letters of the names of the Emperor and the Empress in the center of the page, written within illustrative panels done in sepia.

The Emperor's name CAROLUS is in silver capitalis and the Hebrew equivalent קאראלוס is in gold- display script. Each pair of the silver and gold letters are interwined into each other and framed within rectangular panel (56 x38 mm). Accordingly, but in exchange of colours - gold for the Latin capitalis and silver for the Hebrew display script, is the arrangement for the name ELISABETHA אליזאבעטהא. Here the panels are smaller (39 x25 mm).

The sepia background of the letter-panels of CAROLUS are illustrated from right to left with: a medallion raised by the two putti with palm of victory, palm trees and stylized castle architecture; bouquets of flowers, town architecture, a hunting party with dogs, horsemen and hunter; two lions and a goose; ornamental pattern; an angel’s bust, town architecture and church, squirrels; fountain of life with two flying pigeons; parrot, exotic bird and fox hunt.

The sepia background of the letter-panels for ELISABETHA are illustrated from right to left with: butterfly, owl, lamb; noble couple; decorative vase; putto; exotic birds; resting ox, town architecture, a bear attacked by three dogs; flower bouquet, deer hunting; imperial eagle with scepter and orb; phoenix? on a tree; squirrel, fox and deer.
