The Silver Plated Enameling is rendered on a copper base but the object is first silver plated before enameling. The silver shines thru the translucent enamel creating a brilliant shine. Kubla’s newest enamel line is marketed as Bejeweled Enamel boxes and photo frames. They have worked closely with Chinese partners developing exclusive designs for collectible trinket boxes, and beautiful frames. Brilliant Austrian crystals embellish these items and they all come gift boxed!
