I have always loved the marvelous enamel on copper creations presented by Jean-Paul Loup that were made in the prestigious Betourne Studios in Limoges. This particular piece was issued in 1974 in individually signed and numbered works limited to 400. However, due to the cost of production many of the Jean-Paul Loup Ltd. Editions never reached the full number. The designs required technical perfection that proved to be to very difficult for both artist and studio. As many as 28 different firings at temperatures ranging from 1112 to 1822 degrees were required to get the exquisite finish that Jean-Paul demanded.. This actually caused many pieces to appreciate in value faster than one would expect since they were scarcer, their edition having closed with fewer than the expected number. Additionally, Betourne Studios is the largest classic enameling studio in Limoges, and probably all of France. It is considered by many to be the finest.
