Exquisite Round Snow White Floral Cloisonné Box
Cloisonné, whose history can date back to over 500 years ago, is a well-known traditional enamelware. It is actually called the "Blue of Jingtai" as blue is the dominant color adopted for enameling and cloisonné became prevalent during the reign of Jingtai (1450--1456) in the Ming dynasty. Owing to the brilliant color and splendid designs, cloisonné has been highly appraised in China and abroad. The making of cloisonné involves quite elaborate and complicated processes: base-hammering, soldering, enamel-filling, enamel firing, polishing and gilding.
