This panel is one of five of identical design (07.236.26, 07.236.28, 07.236.29, 07.236.30, 07.236.46); a carved ivory plaque, inlaid into wood and framed by thin strips of ivory and wood. The carving on the plaque consists of an intertwined floral scroll overlaid by a beaded cartouche terminating in a bud. Originally, there would have been more panels, arranged around a central plaque in the shape of a star or a half-star.
