A calligraphic and pictorial bookplate in green ink on sepia tinted paper. There are floral and architectural details framing the scene. Inside the frame is an oval with floral details with "Ex Libris/Winfred Ottinger" written inside. There are two cherubs holding up this oval. They are standing on a platform that reads "Le plaisir de l'esprit passe celui des yeux", which translate to "the pleasure of the mind overtakes that of the eyes".
