This artistic lottery was designed in the style of the Gödöllő artist circle, especially the illustrations of Sándor Nagy and his wife, Laura Kriesch. The main field is bordered by delicate, bent lines. The text appears in the field, similar to paper banknotes. There is a female figure on the right, dressed in Hungarian clothing, giving lottery tickets to small animal figures. The most interesting feature of the ticket is that it bears the signatures of significant leaders of the Hungarian Society for Applied Arts: György Ráth, the chairman, Imre Szálai, vice-president, Kálmán Györgyi, the secretary, and Count Imre Bánffy, board member. The main prize was a diningroom textile set, designed by Pál Horti.
