This wonderful little cloisonné pelican ornament is white with black tips on its wings, outlined in gold filigree. It comes with a gold-tone filigree loop cord, for hanging. It even has a little fish in its mouth. Adorable!

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 every holiday period for years and years.

The little bird measures about 3 inches from beak to tail. He stands about 3 inches high and he even has little webbed feet.

It looks great on the Christmas tree or hanging in a sunny window, sparkling in the light.

They come 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.
