An ornate floral typographic border for a chapter heading. Such borders were usually made from lots of separate pieces of metal type, so that you could make the border any width by adding or removing more pieces.
I have left the unusual heading since it seems quite fun; note also the lack of kerning between the V and the following A; in the days of metal type, kerning a heading here meant taking a metal cutting file to the pieces of type and cutting away the corners, so that they could be fitted together more closely. It was tricky work and required a good eye, and was not attempted at all in this case! Bad kerning today is sometimes called keming.
