Wall glass in carved and gilded frame in the Chinese manner. The side pieces are carved as tree trunks with, on each side, a Chinese boy climbing to reach a ho-ho bird with outstretched wings and straining neck. Above, a cresting of scrolls, with temple-like structures above the upper corners, centres on a Chinese boy carrying another of the birds. Below the glass, scrolls, coquillage and flame-like ornaments centre on a ho-ho bird with outstretched wings and upturned head.
