It is depicted with deep polychrome shades of chartreuse, hunter green, orange and white layered enamel.

Cloisonné is a creative process of decorating metal surfaces using.
Gemstones, glass materials and enamel paints. Gold and silver wires are soldered on to the metal object creating raised partitions or cells. This raised relief is called cloisonné , meaning compartments in French. Enamel paint is then poured into the cells and is subsequently baked in a kiln. Japanese Ginbari is a special cloisonné technique whereby silver foil is used to create a relief on metal surfaces.
Once this is done, crushed colored glass is fused into the enamel and is poured onto the surface. The final step in the process is that each decorative piece is hand-polished into a glass-like finish. As such, there may be minor wear and tear, consistent with age and use.
