The centrepiece "Le Jeu de l'Echarpe" (The Sash Game) was first made in 1897 by Agathon Léonard for the Manufacture Nationale de Porcelaine de Sèvres. The original ten figures were expanded to 15 for the world fair in Paris in 1900. The statuettes of the dancers and musicians are made of bisque porcelain, i.e. unglazed porcelain. Branches and bells, which carry individual figures, are made of silver. There are five figures in the collection of the Bröhan-Museum.
