description
One particularly demanding technique from past ages has been adopted when decorating the present box: it is known as "Limoges-style enamelling" and was originally used for the purpose of embellishing metals with enamel. It enables our porcelain painters to achieve a degree of translucency that is almost ethereal. The birds and floral details are applied to the black-grounded, glazed porcelain in layer after layer of white paint. Some parts of the painting are almost transparent due to the number of layers involved and, in the process, take on an agreeably spatial quality against the black ground. MEISSEN is the only manufactory anywhere in the world that still masters the art of Limoges-style enamelling.
