Description

A stunning example of the time-honored craft of cloisonné, this Smithsonian Floral Cloisonné Jar with Wooden Stand will lend grace and beauty to home or office. The colorful designs were created by hand-applying rich enamels to specially shaped wire compartments that had first been soldered to the brass vase. The colors came to life when they were fired in a kiln, then polished by hand. Display this masterpiece on the included wooden stand. Made in China.
