Spoon


Description Conservation Provenance Inscription Credit
Description The bowl of the spoon is inscribed in Cyrillic: "Eat to your health." Cloisonné is among the oldest methods of enameling, in which thin strips of metal are soldered to a metal base to form the cells that hold the colored enamels. In a Russian variation of cloisonné known as filigree enamel, twisted wires rather than metal strips are fastened to the base to create the cells. In Moscow, during the second half of the 19th century, filigree enameling was popular.
