Donna Frances Davis (1887-1976)
A pictorial bookplate on sepia paper with faded light stains and black ink belonging to Evelyn Aylesworth. There's a woman with short hair looking behind her out the window. Beside her where she's resting her arm are flowers, books, candles, an hourglass, and a pot. The window has a view of the black night sky with stars and the smoke from the candles is flowing out the window.
