The surface effect on this piece was created with a technique called enamelling. Enamel is a powdered glass which fuses to metal when fired at temperatures around 1500°F. When heated, the powder flows and hardens, becoming a smooth and vitreous surface. Enamel is very durable. However, if handled roughly or exposed to chemical cleaners it may crack or become dull. Therefore, please clean this piece with only a polishing cloth and handle with care.
