Inscribed to the German dermatologist Alwin Scharlau.

A Neo-Baroque artist, Weyr created some of the most important figures that adorn the Vienna Ringstraße and designed table settings and other decorative pieces for Emperor Franz Joseph's and Empress Elisabeth's Silver Wedding Anniversary under the direction of Hans Makart (1840-84) in 1879.

Traces of postmarks; a few small creases near upper left and lower right corners. Self-addressed by the collector on the reverse. The Mecklenburg physician Scharlau (b. 1888) assembled a collection of artists' autographs by personal application.
