Good vintage used condition - some rubs wear. Wear consistent with age and use. Vitreous enamel is almost identical with porcelain glaze, except that it is fired on metal and not on china-clay.
It has three forms - Cloisonne, Champleve and Limoge. Bernard Hesling's work is very similar to the technique of Limoge, in that the enamel is painted on and over the entire surface. The word "vitreous" means glass, and these panels etc are painted with coloured ground glass mixed with pine oil in the consistency of thick paint.
This remarkable weather and heat resisting surface is not obtained by the use of any over-glaze. It is the glass paint itself which melts when fired in the furnace at 1600°F. The item "Bernard Hesling unusual rare enamel painting on metal" is in sale since Sunday, June 2, 2019.
