Classic Lotus Design on a Champlevé and Cloisonné Lidded Jar.  China.

Click the photo above for a larger version and more pictures



An outstanding vintage lidded jar featuring excellent Chinese enameling technique.  This process features carved or chiseled depressions from a soft bronze (rich in copper) and 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 on this piece.  Gold paint is used throughout the background depressions.


Manufactured by a “craftsman” enamel factory to the west of old Beijing.


Notice the classic lotus design.


Gorgeous and in great condition.
