Vintage Chinese Cloisonne Dish Vide Poche

Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metalwork objects, in recent centuries using vitreous enamel, and in older periods also inlays of cut gemstones, glass, and other materials. The resulting objects can also be called cloisonné. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments (cloisons in French) to the metal object by soldering or adhering silver or gold wires or thin strips placed on their edges. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays.

Vide Poche literally means ’empty pocket’. This sort of dish would sit on a piece of furniture in the hallway of a large house and when the master came home he would deposit the contents of his pockets into it and then retrieve them the following day.

Bright vibrant colours that will stay like that forever and a pretty red interior border with chinese figures featured in center – it is a very nice piece and would grace any dressing table. measures 4″ in diameter. In mint condition.

I have over 30 years experience in shopping and managing estate sales.  I work with clients to determine the best pricing strategy for their prized possessions and best sales strategy.  For high end items, I work exclusively online – targeting collectors who are looking to buy unique or rare items, who are willing to pay a fare market value.  My sellers are no longer limited to a local market sales strategy – because I can help them market their items to collectors across the country.  My buyers now have access to beautiful items from across the country – beautiful items that enhance their life style.   I’ve been described as a match maker – helping people connect for mutual benefit.  I consider myself an entrepreneur who sees the potential in every items I list for sale.  My job is done when the match is made and both parties are satisfied.
