"I wish you good luck, a good conscience, a sweet and nice friend to kiss, and the flower, that slips through your fingers, turns into a forget-me-not." Larger size hand-colored etching in stippled style. 11.5 x 8.7 cm. Vienna, Johann Joseph Neidl, around 1820. A young man carries numerous baskets, the content of which reveals itself only when the lever on the outside edge is pulled upward: out of the basket on his back emerges a woman pressing to his cheek, the front flat basket now presents a towering forget-me-not, and the basket parked on the rock, now reveals a small winged Cupid. In addition, a single rose appears in front of his chest. A truly wonderful and complex transformation. Some browning, one very small chip and a small tear, but all movable entities working fine.
