This wonderful cloisonné snowman ornament is made of hand enameled panels in white, with a blue top hat, a green and red scarf and a carrot nose. The trim is outlined in gold tone filigree.

It comes with a gold-tone filigree loop cord, for hanging. These are made of copper, and with proper care they should last for years and years. We think they may well become family keepsakes, brought out for every holiday season.

The little snowman ornament measures about 4.5 inches high and 2.5 inches wide. It looks great hanging on the Christmas tree, in a sunny window or over a fireplace, sparkling in the light. It comes in a small gift box.

Cloisonné is an ancient technique for decorating metal objects -- in recent centuries using enamel and in older periods using inlays of cut gems, glass and other materials. The resulting art forms can also be called cloisonné. The decoration is formed by first adding compartments (cloisons in French) to the metal object by soldering or otherwise adhering silver or gold wires. These remain visible in the finished piece, separating the different compartments of the enamel or inlays, which are often of several colors. Enamel is applied, and the artwork is then fired in a kiln. Skilled artists can create wonderful designs.
