Framed lithographic print of an advertisement of Ferry's Seeds. The print has a tan background, and at the top of the image is a white circle. Within the white circle is a woman, depcited from the shoulders upward, facing to the right in a three-quarter view. She wears a green hat or bonnet decorated with pink flowers. She holds a bouquet of pink, purple, and green flowers up to her face. The woman fades into the background below the shoulders, but the bouquet trails down to the bottom of the image. In the bottom left corner is the text "BUY FERRY'S SEEDS." The image has a beige or off-white matting. Displayed in a wooden frame and overlaid with glass. The wood of the frame is stained a mid-toned yellow-brown, with incised lines coloured a darker brown. The back of the frame is covered in a thin, brown paper. A wire stretches across the back of the frame horizontally, attached to a metal loop at either side. At the bottom of the frame on its back are two sitckers, one which reads "The contents of this frame have been matted with archival quality Alphamat." and the other reads "Belmont Custom Picture Framing & Art Gallery, 664-0399, 189 Main St., Belmont, Ont., N0L 1B0, Gerald Smith, Debbie Hope."
