CAF Chicago Skyline Cloisonne Ornament
This cloisonne ornament is a handcrafted work of art—no two ornaments are exactly alike!
Cloisonne is an ancient, time consuming art which was introduced to China by western travelers in the 14th century. To begin the process, highly trained artisans bend wire strips by hand to create the patterns within the design. These wires are them soldered into a copper form which has been carefully molded to create the desired shape of the ornament. Each cell is inlaid with enamels, then fired at very high temperatures repeatedly. Its eventually cooled, polished and 24k gold plated to create this unique heirloom for you and your family to enjoy for years to come!
