ornament with a mixture of styles.
Explanation:
This is what I make of it.

It is referring to the fact the ornament has been the subject of different stylistic approaches.

I cannot find an exact translation of this, but by taking the word apart helps.

Trans - across/cross

The ornament shows examples of different styles.

In the arts you can talk about there being a cross-over of styles (eg. from art deco to ...)

I hope some of this helps.
