No.1 has scenes around the border, each corner is different, Nile scene with palm tree, boat, and two pyramids; desert scene with a man and a camel; a pyramid by itself with palm trees and finally a building of some sort, perhaps a mosque (Mosque of Mohammad Ali?). In between each corner scene is three palm trees.Maker
