Cloisonné was developed thousands of years ago during the Byzantine era and traveled via the Silk Road to China, where it has flourished as an art form ever since. To create a design in cloisonné, an artist's original sketch must be traced using thin strips of wire. Into this wire "scaffolding" is inserted powdered enamel that, when baked, fills the outlines and creates a porcelain-like appearance.


Here cloisonné is used to create a set of miniature teapot ornaments, a nod to China’s long history as a tea-drinking culture. According to legend, the drink was accidentally discovered there in the third century B.C. when a tea leaf fell into Emperor Shennong’s water.


Handmade in Beijing, China. Each is 2 1/4"W x 1 1/4"H.

        Very cute. I'd bought them as a gift for my sister-in-law, but they're so cute, I may keep them for myself, and order her another set.

        I love that they came in an easy-to-gift-wrap box of four and that each teapot is also in it's own tiny individual box. (sister-in-law, neice 1, neice 2, former sister-i-law.) One for each!

          I bought 2 sets and shared them with my sisters, mother and dear tea-drinking friends. We all love them and will think of each other when we use/see the teapot that is ours.

            Received as a lovely gift. Used a couple on my Christmas tree and a couple as gift decorations. Splendid gift.
