Item Description

Metal objects can be decorated in different ways, and they can be gilded, engraved or covered with enamel. Adding enamel adds colour to the shine of the polished metal. One of the basic techniques for applying enamel onto metal surfaces is the so-called cloisonné enamel. This technique implies that a composition of pulverized multicoloured glass is fused within wire cells (made of metal).
