This detailed slice of exotica points out in the text that the Place Clichy department store is the premiere importer of oriental merchandise in the entire world, but Grasset's artistic skill makes the boast seem almost redundant as that notion has already been brightly conveyed in the design that went through several printings and editions, beginning in 1891.
