Decorative plate made in China in the first half of the 1800s
using the cloisonné technique, artistic enamel decoration
where the small cell was created (from the French cloisons)
where the enamels of different colors were then inserted.
Everything was cooked in ovens and then polished to bring to light
the metal that forms the design and to confer
to the enamels the translucent patina typical of these artifacts.
The dish is decorated, on a light blue background,
with flowers and birds in shades of red, green, pink and blue.
On the back the sign of an ancient repair,
on the front very small nicks not worthy of note.
