Puzzling Evidence - Chinese Cloisonne in 1933 Advertisement of N. Shure Co., Chicago

This was an eBay item too neat to pass up, so now it's mine; however, I bought it to share with you because documentation for vintage cloisonne is not all that common.

Here are a couple of pictures, so the details can be viewed more closely than in the scan.
Over the past months, I've seen pieces similar to all of these on eBay.


The little online currency inflation calculator I used determined that $15 in 1933 is the equivalent of about $270 today.
