The process of creating products with color enamel is incredibly complicated. Even a mature master has to do more than a dozen experiments before he manages to get the desired shade of enamel. Each enameler should be not only an artist, but a great technologist. Often work with enamel because of some technological fixes “dies” at the last stage of its manufacture. That is why even in the days of the golden age of Russian art, enamel was a real work of art, very rare and tended to be consigned to a narrow circle of connoisseurs and experts. An exclusive nature of these works explains high prices, it was available only for a few representatives of the nobility.
