Mary Alice Ercolini
Etched bookplate on textured, sepia tint paper, in brown ink and partially colored, made for Mary Alice Ercolini. It depicts three women in Japanese dress. Two are kneeling at a table and another enters the room. There is a cat curled up on the table, and outside a blossoming tree. In the bottom left corner, below the scene, is a small, potted plant, perhaps bamboo. On the back is written 'Japanese tea ceremony'.
