The present set of painted enamel wares is notable for its well preserved condition as a group and for the decoration that imitates cloisonné enamel wares of the Qianlong period.  The outlines of the decoration are painted in gold and colour enamels, such as rich tones of blue, brown, yellow and green, which are filled in to produce a cloisonné enamel effect.  This luxurious and impressive decorative technique was first introduced to the enamellers' repertoire by artists working in Guangzhou where wares of this type were made as tribute items for the Qing court.

For examples of pieces made in this technique see a you-form vessel, a double-gourd vase and a covered bowl illustrated in Tributes from Guangdong to the Qing Court, Hong Kong, 1987, pls. 42, 43 and 48 respectively.  It is noted (ibid., pp. 54-55) that while these wares were produced in Guangzhou during the Qianlong period, the technique declined by Jiaqing's reign and was discontinued soon afterward.

Compare also a large flower pot decorated in this technique published in Masterpieces of Chinese Enamel Ware in the National Palace Museum, Taipei, 1971, pl. 46; and a pair of bowls published in Michael Gillingham, Chinese Painted Enamels, Oxford, 1978, pls. 125 and 126.
