Three pairs of peaches pile up to form a pot, with the largest pair at the bottom and the smallest on the top. A pair of bats facing each other embraces the pot. Their widely unfolded wings hold up a cloisonné medallion design of the Chinese character "Longevity" (shou) surrounded by gold embossed flowers. Among the three tiers, seven smaller gilt bronze bats sport about the peaches. Cloisonné branches and leaves stretch and twine around the pot. The shinny and smooth red coral tree has an unusually regular shape. Its branches, which are as thick as a wrist and as broad as a fan, are evenly distributed.
The potted landscape combines different techniques including cloisonné enamel, painted enamel, embossed metalwork and welding. It is such a precious ornament that it was only displayed on the emperor or the empress's birthdays.
