PRODUCT DETAILS
Description
Hand-enamelled costume hair clip based on a detail from a 19th Chinese century cloisonné vase, a popular motif in Oriental decorative arts, butterflies symbolised grace and conjugal bliss. From Byzantium or the Islamic world this enamelling technique reached China in the 13–14th centuries where it is called 'Dashi ware'. Initially regarded with suspicion, by the beginning of the 18th century the Kangxi Emperor had a cloisonné workshop among the many Imperial factories.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
