Notes:

This capital letter “T” is a vignetted initial—that is, an initial letter with a drawing around it rather than inside it. The vignette, or scene, shows a fluted stone pillar or pedestal with a sundial on the top of it, next to a scythe with its long curved wooden handle and sharp curved blade. These are of course symbols of the passage of time and of death; they are set in a background of a field with a branch of a tree.

It would be fairly easy to change the “T” to another letter to make whatever initial or drop cap you wanted.
