Lapel pins & pin badges with fire-enamelled colouring
In the design of embossed pin badges and lapel badges from B.H. Mayer's, gold, silver, copper and black nickel metal studs separate areas filled with coloured fire enamel. The surfaces are ground level and polished after firing. The oldest known enamelwork was found in grave goods in a Mycenaean burial in Cyprus and is approx. 3,500 years old. But the technique was also used in ancient Egypt and in Celtic times as well as by goldsmiths in the Middle Ages.
|Method||After embossing, metal studs separate the coloured areas filled with hard enamel. The surface is ground level and polished in the next production process.|
