The plaque of circular shape, in gilt-bronze and turquoise ground cloisonne enamels. In the lower part, a pond with blooming lotus flowers and leaves. The pond is surrounded by an elegant fence made of spotted bamboo. The two little dogs, most likely Pekingese, are depicted in the center of a garden of flowers and shrubs.
