For What It’s Worth

There is Cloisonné and there’s Cloisonné: pictured is a pretty modern example “Made in Japan” probably circa 1950. Brought in by a reader with high hopes for value. A ding on the side doesn’t help along with the simple design. The best examples can be worth thousands, this example about $100.
