An 8" x 5 1/4" color lithograph illustration of a statuesque and properly lady borders by embossed whimsical anthropomorphic heart characters surrounding the margins.  It is captioned: "Stepped from a pedestal to take the air", You'd think she had, she looks so statuesque, Or ancient Heroine from who knows where, Who had a passion for the picturesque "tis idle to compete with Venus de Medici, Put on some Crinoline I do beseech ye!".
