This is an adaptation inspired by preserved originals dating for the most part from the first quarter of the 13th century (Emaux de Limoges).
Of course, the presence of these enamelled plates/loops on the scabbards of swords remains hypothetical.
- "Double-windowed" copper buckle cut in the mass and formed with a file and a cabron.
- Enamelled decoration on champlevé.
- Gilding 24 carats.
- Copper plate (about 4x5cm) with two rivets at the corners.
- Enamelled decoration on champlevé and cloisonné
- Central character engraved with a chisel (My adaptation differs from the original since on most originals the heads of the characters are in relief).
- 24 carat gold plating.
Firing from 750°C for the softest glazes to 900°C for the hardest.
The matt appearance of the enamels is typical of the enamelled objects of this period because after surfacing with abrasive stones of different grains, the enamels were not necessarily annealed
to obtain their characteristic brilliance, but left as is. A very fine sanding allows to obtain a very homogeneous surface state.
