    This wonderfully colored urn at The Society of California Pioneers museum is enamel on bronze. It sits on the the opposite side of the desk I previously posted from the other urn I posted. The precision with which these were produced is just breathtaking.

    Can anyone tell me more about this urn - what era and region it might be from, what some of the symbolism on it is?

    From my recent trip to the Society of California Pioneers...

      I think this is a Chinese cloisonne vase.

      Oh my god..... You don't own that do you?? That is very valuable and very old. Oh I just read your text, I'm not surprised this is in a museum. That is some very old Chinese cloisonne, its worth a fortune
