"Time stands behind an oval table covered with a cloth on which is an hour-glass, its sands nearly run out, standing on a large flat book inscribed 'Traitè de Paix', from which five seals hang evenly. Behind him is a doorway in a stone wall, covered with a curtain, one side of which he holds. With his left forefinger he points upwards at the inscription above the door: 'L'avenir', which is decorated with seven (drooping) ears of corn. The seals are inscribed (left to right): 'F.W.' [Frederick William of Prussia]; 'G Rx', with its ribbon inscribed 'God save the King'; France; a crowned 'C' [Catherine II]; 'Fr. Imp.' [Francis Imperator] (prophetic of the powers that decided the fate of Holland in 1815). 'Le génie du Terns garde la porte de l'avenir;... Qui est le mortel assez hardi, pour oser le penetrer? . . .' Text, 'Proverbs', x. 28. To this is added, in English only, 'St. Matthew', v. 9, 'Blessed are the peacemakers!'"--British Museum online catalogue.
