Pair of Chinese Cloisonne Vases with Handles

A pair of Chinese enamel vases, dating to the Early 20th Century, decorated with a cloisonne animal motif.

Cloisonne is an ancient technique used to decorate metalwork with inlays of enamel, which is exhibited in this colourful expression of Chinese art. By soldering thin wires of silver, gold or copper to the base metal, different compartments can be separated. These compartments are then filled with enamel and buffed back. This process is repeated several times to achieve rich colouring and a smooth finish.
