Jiki-shippo literally, “porcelain-enamel,” is enamel work that is decorated on a porcelain body or foundation that has been fired at a high temperature. Also commonly referred to as totai shippo, a more general term used to include ceramic, earthenware or porcelain bases. “Tree-bark” cloisonne’ is relatively fragile due to the delicate surfacing technique which will sometimes chip or crack around the edges because of the porcelain base..
These objects on porcelain were only made for a short period c1870-80 because the technique was rather difficult, and through the fast technical development most company's made the cloisonné on copper again.
