Chinese Imperial Openwork Cloisonne Round Box

Very sophisticated openwork cloisonne round box with multi-colored enamels and scrolling lotus design on gild brass ground. This piece is circa 1890. Open work is where the background between the design elements is not filled in with enamel, giving a raised effect that is often confused with champlevé.

Champleve, on the other hand, is a brass stamped base, with enamel filled into the base. The colors are thick and rich, of the period. The protected area below the closure still has its brilliant gilding, while the top surface has a more aged patina that is indicative of 19th century works.

It measures 3 1/4 inches in diameter, and is approximately 1 1/2 inches high. The interior is solid enameling. The item "Chinese Imperial Openwork Cloisonne Round Box" is in sale since Wednesday, December 11, 2019.
