A small silver-gilt and cloisonné enamel kovsh bearing spurious Russian marks, with flowers on pale yellow ground with turquoise enamel bead borders

Dimesions: 8 cm. long

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 Kovsh is a traditional drinking vessel or ladle from Russia. It was oval-shaped like a boat with a single handle and may be shaped like a water bird or a Norse longship. (Wikipedia)
