Fine Silver Jewelry Case with Cloisonne Flower and Butterfly Design
This lovely fine silver picture frame is elegantly decorated with cloisonne flowers and butterflies. The traditional enamelwork technique developed over a millennium ago complements this charming jewelry case wonderfully.
The embossed pattern on the silver surface, which is created through innumerable hammering by a skilled artisan, adds beautiful panache to this photo frame. This kind of technique is originated from banjja, a craft term indicating a technique of Korean bronzeware making in Chosun Dynasty (1392-1910). Korean bronzeware was made through a hard, time-consuming procedure in which the artisan needs to hammer a lump of heated metal innumerable times to turn it into a pre-conceived form. The works of this type are regarded as the best of all bronzeware.
