Enamel on silver

Enamelling is the art of ornamenting the surface of metal by fusing together different minerals over it to create designs in colour. The metal is first engraved, chased or repoussed to provide depressions within which the colours are embedded. The range of colour attainable on gold is greater than on silver and still more on copper than on brass. In India, Jaipur and Kashmir are two important centres of this art form.
