The polychrome enamel is European in style, but it is a testimony to Chinese inspiration and should be compared to the work of the Christofle company and the architect and theoretician Emile Reiber in the second half of the 19th century. The frame, also in the Chinese spirit, is similar to the models designed by Edouard Lièvre.
