Champlevé bronze Chinese urn c1860 lamped. This Chinese "Champlevé bronze" vase measures 23 inches high. The overall measurement from the base to the top of the harp is 37 inches and it has a 7 inches wood vase.Excellent condition with decorative enamel inserted around its mid section. Excellent condition. Champlevé is an enameling technique in the decorative arts, or an object made by that process, in which troughs or cells are carved, etched, die struck, or cast into the surface of a metal object, and filled with vitreous enamel. The piece is then fired until the enamel fuses, and when cooled the surface of the object is polished. The un carved portions of the original surface remain visible as a frame for the enamel designs; typically they are gilded in medieval work. The name comes from the French for "raised field", "field" meaning background, though the technique in practice lowers the area to be enameled rather than raising the rest of the surface. The technique has been used since ancient times, though it is no longer among the most commonly used enameling techniques. Champlevé is suited to the covering of relatively large areas, and to figurative images, although it was first prominently used in Celtic art for geometric designs. In Romanesque art its potential was fully used, decorating caskets, plaques and vessels.
