Description
Antique Crucifix "Limoges" champlevé technique. (1) - Gothic Style - Bronze, Copper, Onyx - First half 20th century
France

The enamel of Mosan and Limoges is the most famous and the figures carved into the copper plate display an excellent line feeling.
The production of Limoges enamel, not easily distinguishable from Spanish work, were also produced on a small scale.
The work was sometimes gilded on gold or silver, but in Limoges and Spain, gold-plated copper is common.
