The two peonies inlaid top and front are vividly rendered in full bloom, surrounded by buds and tendrils. Twisted brass wires are used to link up the blooms to form a neat plant. Not only are the individual decorative units a great deal larger and bold but the décor still leaves some blank areas, allowing the individual motifs to stand out to much better effect and creating a feeling of greater overall generosity.
