    Cloisonne: Beijing is where cloisonne making originated. The earliest was made in the Yuan Dynasty (1271-1368). The best was made during the Xuan De period (1426-1456) of the Ming Dynasty. During the Jing Tai period of the same dynasty, handicraftsmen found a dark-blue enamel which gave cloisonne a gorgeous, solemn look & is still used today.
