Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects. The resulting objects can also be called cloisonné. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments to the metal object by soldering or adhering silver or gold wires or thin strips placed on their edges. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays, which are often of several colors. Cloisonné enamel objects are worked on with enamel powder made into a paste, which then needs to be fired in a kiln.
This is a handsome example of Japanese cloisonné. It is in over good condition; there is minor age appropriate pitting to the enamel and some wear on the bottom of the pot. Please see the photographs for more on the look and condition of this fine cloisonné teapot.
