Lovely. I'll have to keep an eye out for this one. Looking at the ends of the enameled panels I can see entry/exit grooves as if the cutouts were made with with a rotary tool - either a stacked set of blades or a machined cutter. I can't help but try to figure out how this kind of work was done. It must have been exciting being a toolmaker back then trying to figure out how to execute the intricacies the designers kept coming up with.
