Cloisonne is an enamel work that uses thin metal bands to separate coloured areas on a metal surface. This technique originated in France and has been used to decorate metal objects for centuries. In older periods, inlays of precious stones, glass, and other materials were also used. Today, vitreous enamel is typically used to create these designs. Enamel powder is turned into a paste and fired in a kiln to produce the final product.
The vase is in excellent condition and features stunning colours that complement each other perfectly.
It measures about 24.5cm x 11.7cm in diameter.
