Plaque, 1867
Antoine Tard (19th Cent.); Christofle et Cie
This plaque, the first piece of cloisonné enamel produced by Christofle, was displayed at the Paris 1867 Exhibition. Tard, the enameller, re-invented the technique of cloisonné without being aware of Chinese precedents. (Given by Messrs. C. Christofle and Company) ©Victoria and Albert Museum, London
