Enamel Terminology & History

Plique-a-jour [letting in daylight]: a vitreous enamelling technique. The enamel is applied in cells similar to the technique known as 'closonne.' In the absence of backing, 'plique' enables light to shine through the transparent - or translucent- enamel.

Closonne [close or cell]: an ancient technique for decorating comparatively small objects including jewellery and fittings for clothes.

The Art Deco period [1920-1930] was associated with luxury and modernity and saw a ressurgance in enamelling which combined expensive materials with craftsmanship.
