but I believe she already is married to a doc smiley Alex next time I hit Geneva, you must arrange a meeting,  it would be wonderful to see her at work! Same goes for all the Masters! Thanks Alex for this beautiful video, that I can see, as written above, over and over again smiley I 'only' have these two Chinese vases in cloisonne Cheers Doc

Very informative, seeing the cloisonne framework work done with a pair of tweezers!  The slight irregularities in the metal bending seen under extreme magnification are a great sign of hand-crafting, but in the last example the base work looked to be totally uniform...was this done by milling the metal by machine rather than layering the framework by hand?
Champlevé technique: the dial is engraved and then the cavities

filled with enamel, that's why the lines are perfectly uniform
