Antique Heavy Champlevé and Cloisonné Bronze Bowl with Cover

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



This outstanding container, with its intricate design of lotus and interlocking flowers, features carved or chiseled depressions in a bronze vessel  . . . . then filled with enamel, fired and polished.


Cloisonné was used for the finer details. Here metal wire or ribbon act as a partition for the enamel to be placed.


Both techniques are used throughout in the background depressions.


Exquisite quality.


Purchased from a mid-eastern family who said it was from the early 20th Century.


For the Serious Collector.
