Experimental innovation: Use of glass enamels on Ceramics

One of the most simple yet elegant Titian glazes was the cobalt blue. This was often finished with gilt highlights. Less often, a very interesting transfer was applied, resulting in a fine two toned cameo-relief effect.
This transfer was in fact originally designed for used on glassware, so its application to ceramics was somewhat innovative for Titian.
The above vase is 27 cm tall and is numbered V 118 (Vase number 18).
