Vintage vignette with leaves surrounding a shell. A great black and white image for anyone looking for an artistic page separator.
The Story of Mark Raffles contained this and a number of other print foundry page decorations. Whether it was the author William Dalton or the publishers T. Nelson and Sons who chose this image – we are sure glad they did, so that we may enjoy it now. It dates back to at least 1871.
