Chinese Cloisonne

Cloisonne is a technique of decorating metal objects with coloured fillings - glass or enamel. This technique was used in Europe and the Near East and was likely introduced by Mongols to China. In Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), it had developed to the present art form, more sophisticated and refined.
