One of the most famous examples were the Chinese Coromandel screens that used a vast combination of lacquering techniques. Many of the patterns, which come in a variety of sizes, shapes, and styles, were originally conceived for decorating textiles, ceramics, metalwork, woodcarvings, basketry, and cut paper, in addition to carved stone, tiles, and other architectural elements. The folding screen originated in ancient China and was later interpreted by other nations such as France and Sweden.
Metal wires are soldered to the form, such as a vase or piece of jewellery, in decorative patterns and then filled in with enamel, coloured glass or gem inlays resulting in a mosaic-like quality to the finished piece, although much more fine.
