Amazing Plique-a-jour Cloisonne Shaped Transparent Bird Thimble New For Sale

This is a stunning Plique-a-jour thimble shaped as a transparent bird atop a blue thimble decorated with flowers on the band. The bird has dark red and green color accents on the wings, blue on the head and yellow and red tail feathers but the main body is clear enamel. Plique-a-jour is an enameling process. The enamel is laid between thin raised metal lines and heated. The finished piece has transparent enamel held between the thin metal wires. It is different from cloisonne because it is translucent. In the photograph I have two different views. The very light photo where you can see the translucence was taken out doors in the sunlight. The other photo was taking indoors with a camera flash so you can see the great colors when not held to the light. It is an exceptionally well done thimble in NEW condition. It is 1 7/8" tall. These are expensive thimbles to create and are not seen very often. I always give a combined shipping discount. For international buyers, the cost of additional thimbles is based on weight. I do not make money on S&H, my materials generally run no more than 50ยข above actual postage price for each invoice/package. When you are done buying/offerding, please ask for a combined invoice for best S&H discount.


***NOTE - FOR COMBINED SHIPPING DISCOUNT, ALL sales MUST BE PAID WITH ONE PAYMENT****

PAYMENT: We prefer PayPal. S&H includes insurance. Shipping discount is based on multiple purchases made within 14 days and paid with ONE payment. If payment is not received within 8 days of sale's end, buyer will be filed as a non-paying buyer!
