Square, slightly concave cloisonne enamel plate with bronze rim. Underside is covered in solid, slightly speckled dull finished blue/green enamel, with single ring foot of bronze. Upper surface has design of 3 bunches of flowers (red, yellow, and light red, all mixed with white) one above the other, with green leaves, the lowest being next to an irregular brown, grey, and light purple shape. All are on black background through which are scattered brass zigzag wires.

History Of Use

The technique of making cloisonne enamel was first introduced to China in the 14th century or perhaps earlier, having evolved in Europe and the Middle East. This piece is probably of the late 19th century to early 20th century manufacture, made for export or for sale to Europeans.
