Large ANtique Chinese Champleve Enamel Vase Elephant handles Urn with jewels

Quantity available: 1


.   This is a huge rare 19th century  champlevé urn vase with handles of elephants. . The whole background is made up of different raised designs. I think it is bronze ( too heavy and dark to be brass ) and it is REALLY HEAVY . This is an exceptional vase with nice patina that measures 12" tall and 9" wide.. This Champlevé (pronounced "Sham-pluh-vay") technique is the opposite of the cloisonné process: instead of building up on the surface of the metal object, the surface is gouged away, creating troughs and channels separated by thin ridges of metal that form the outline of the design. The troughs are filled with powdered enamel and fused. The champlevé technique requires a thick metal base and therefore is used more often on tombac, copper and other base metals. I have had this for many years and it is time for it to get a new home. You get it dust and patina and all.   VintageSparkles offers Layaway on all our pieces regardless of which site it comes from.All layaway payments will need to be in the form of a check or money order only.
