Cloisonné Sea Turtle Ornament
Exquisite the year round, this stunning molded copper ocean dweller derives its “markings” from fused copper wire and its vividly translucent coloring from hand-painted and kiln-fired enamels. This Cloisonné Sea Turtle Ornament is a gorgeous example of the ancient art of cloisonné. 4"l. x 4"w.
