Japanese Cloisonné is easily distinguished from its Chinese counterpart by the differentiation in color and by the fine hand with which it has obviously been created. The enameling is generally set upon silver or other metals. The shading and color combinations utilized in these pieces are truly fantastic. The subjects portrayed in the enameling vary broadly and these include landscapes, renderings of animals and plants, as well as geometric motifs, whereas the subjects of Chinese are generally stylized geometric designs.
