Vintage Cloisonné Lamps

One of my favorite pieces is this vintage cloisonné-style lamp I inherited from my grandmother. (The little metal horse is another favorite gift from a friend.) Cloisonné, a technique used for layering enamel onto an object, incorporates gold or silver details. In decor, this technique is loosely translated into decorative patterns with several layers of color and sheen. The metallic accents look especially rich on lamps, where they reflect and refract light. Click below for a few cloisonné and cloisonné-inspired options:
