Item description: 

The design of this plate is loosely based, in reverse, on Dance of Cupids, Marcantonio Raimondi's print traditionally considered to be after a drawing by Raphael (now lost) made ca. 1515. The plate, which bears on the reverse the initials MG and the date 1525, demonstrates artists' use of prints as a decorative source.
