Another wonderful vintage page spacer and vignette. This one features leaves surrounding a shield. It could easily be colorized or left black and white. This image was included in the interesting book about Triumphs of Invention and Discovery in Art and Science which was published by T. Nelson and Sons of London in 1871.
