Within the outer frame, an interlaced roll, with five-petal floral and foliate staff stamps. Within the following frame is a historiated roll with scenes from the life of Christ, not found in Haebler, Rollen- und Plattenstempel. Two sets of diagonal triple fillets form a lozenge-shaped compartment within the inner rectangle; in the centre, four lattice stamps surrounded by a frame made of profiles of men in medallions, with the space between filled with ornamental foliage. ‘C F' and ‘1563' respectively above and below the lozenge-shaped compartment. On the lower cover the inner rectangle contains two sets of interlaced rolls running vertically, surrounded by a frame made of a small historiated roll, too worn to decribe.
