Excellent Condition to Most. There is minor enamel loss on the inside.
Between 1450 and 1456 craftsmen found a blue glaze in navy-blue color which is elegant and a direct decent of The Japanese Arts. When doing the Cloisonné, firstly, the metal is shaped for the body of the piece or bead and secondly, the pattern is overlaid on the body by oblate and thin brass wires which are bent to create the design and to keep the colors separated. Then the inlay pattern is filled with enamel glaze material in different colors. The last procedure is the firing over and over and finally the polishing.
The word “Cloisonné” is used to identify the technique as well as the finished product.
Your Set of 5 Vases will arrive carefully wrapped in white tissue paper, bubble wrap and a sturdy Priority Shipping Box. Thank you for visiting A Twinkle in Time Vintage Jewelry, Accessories & Collectibles.
