Here is a wonderful vintage Chinese bowl in the plique-a-jour method. This is a French expression that literally means" glimpse of day." It is a vitreous enameling technique similar to cloisonné but with no backing so light can shine through. The effect is like a stained glass window (see pictures). So, it is translucent enamel with a profusion of colors throughout the bowl. It measures 3 inches wide and 2 inches high on a carved wooden stand and is in excellent condition. Thank you for your interest in this lovely piece.
