    History of Enamelling

    Historically, enamel was initially applied to gold, silver, copper and bronze, and then on iron and steel.  The earliest known enamelled objects were made in Cyprus around the 13th Century BC.  Gold rings decorated with vitreous coloured layers fused on to the gold were discovered in a Mycenaean tomb.  Earlier decoration of metal objects with glass found in ancient Egyptian tombs relied on cementing the glass to the metal.  Cloisonne` techniques pre-date enamel to 4000 BC.  Cloisonne` was a method of setting semi precious stones into jewellery by cold cementing.  It was widely used by the Egyptians, as displayed in the famous gold mask of Tutankhamen.   The first enamelling on iron is believed to have taken place in the 18th Century in Germany.
