 Embroidered and painted tulle page. The scene represents a swallows’ flight on a background of a marine environment (?). The bodies and the wings are in paillettes while the heads and the bell of the swallow are probably painted at distemper with a more compact tissue. The bakelite waved sticks have metal inclusions which remind the paillettes
