Crowned with cloisonné peony beads atop smaller beads of brass and glass, these Peony Hair Sticks are functional adornments. Organdy gift pouch. Assembled in the U.S.A.
An art form originating in the Middle East and elevated in China after its arrival there in the 13th and 14th centuries, the cloisonné technique adorns copper or bronze objects with copper wire designs. The resulting cells are then filled with enamel, fired in a kiln and polished, creating a harmonious contrast between the gleaming metal and the jewel-hued enamel. These lovely Peony Hair Sticks are reminiscent of cloisonné objects in our Freer Gallery of Art.
