Plique-à-jour, (French for "braid letting in daylight"} is a vitreous enameling technique where the enamel is applied in cells, similar to cloisonne, but with no backing in the final product, so light can shine through the transparent or translucent enamel. It has a stained-glass like appearance and is considered very challenging technically. (From: Wikipedia)

Sorry about last week everyone. I have been super slammed with deadlines. I will do my best to publish "Antique Tuesday" each week. Sometimes it maybe only twice a month. I hope you enjoyed this weeks post.
