Description The surfaces are decorated with formal, geometric and diaper designs in champlevé enamel executed in the traditional colors in the early 1870s -- red, blue, white and green. Dots have been incised in the beaker's surface to outline the enameled patterns and to provide a more muted surface. This decorative scheme may have been inspired by peasant embroidery.
