The cloisonné enamel process uses metal separations (or partitions) to deposit the different colors to be vitrified. The artist thus creates his enamel decoration.
Cloisonné enamels form one of the most important classes of enamelware.
In the Middle Ages, gold shrines were often decorated with cloisonné enamels. It should be noted that the 19th century saw a resurrection of cloisonné enamelling. For example, there are vases and decorative objects in cloisonné enamel that will serve as mantelpieces or showcase objects.
