Item description

This lovely Cloisonne enamel temple style ginger/spice jar stands about 3 1/4 inches tall and under 3 inches around at it's widest point. While vintage, the jar is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks or stains. Plique-a-jour (French: open to light) is an enameling process. The enamel, like cloisonne, is laid between thin raised metal lines and heated. However, unlike cloisonne, There is no metal under the wires.The finished piece has transparent enamel held between the thin metal wires. It is different from cloisonne because it is translucent. The technique is designed to produce an effect of a stained-glass window in miniature through the use of translucent enamels. Developed in France and Italy in the 14th century, this technique has been used largely for making vessels, jewelry. Please contact me with any questions and you can see my booth policies here
