This ornate border originally surrounded a portrait of the famous Swedish opera singer Jenny Lind.

The border has in the top corners two circular wreaths each containing a pair of birds; beneath these on each side is a winged angel: that on the right is reading or holding up a book; that on the left might be knitting. Beneath the angels large bunches of grapes. At top centre two birds in abasket, with lit candles on either side. At the foot of the page scrollwork and vines, with a cartouch at bottom centre in which originally the caption appeared, “the Swedish Nightingale.”

Separate images are available with the whole page image, the portrait of Jenny Lind and the ornate frame around the picture.
