Antique Chinese Ronde-Bosse Enamel Ornaments

Two terms are commonly used to describe Chinese enamels: cloisonné and Canton enamel …but there is a third type of Chinese Enamel. The French call it "Ronde-bosse" and have used the technique since the 14th century. It produces small three-dimensional figures, or reliefs, largely or entirely covered in enamel. These are three beautiful Chinese examples – not mass produced … by an unknown Chinese artist (c. late Qing Dynasty).
