Stunning bowl using two processes to achieve its beauty.

 

First, Champlevé.  The Champlevé process of enameling involves carving or chiseling of a bronze/copper/brass vessel followed by enamel (glass) being placed in the depressions . . .  then, followed by firing and then grinding/polishing.   The background is painted in gold.

 

Second, Cloisonné.  Cloisonné is used along with the Champlevé along the outside rim.  On the inside, a gorgeous flower and bird are done in fine Cloisonné detail with copper wire forming the partitions… followed by the enamel poured, fired and polished.

 

This piece comes from the early 1950s, this is an excellent example of Chinese enameling work (also called fu-lin ware) .
