Vintage Tractor Cufflinks with Movable Wheels AC1187-REDXX
Product Code: AC1187-REDXX
Vitreous enamel is glass,its colours come from the inclusion of metallic oxides.
The application of vitreous enamel is time consuming and requires great patience.All the processes are done by hand and eye with no mechanical or automated assistance.
The glass must first be ground to a very fine powder,mixed with distilled water and applied to the prepared metal background,when the water evaporates the metal is heated with a gas torch to approximately 800 degrees centigrade,this causes the glass to fuse onto the metal.This process has to be repeated many times on each piece in order to build up the depth of enamel,finally the surface is ground with carborundum then re-fired to obtain the bright finish the cufflinks display.The application of different colours into their separate divisions or "cloisons" must be executed without a single grain of colour spilling into the adjoining cloison otherwise the piece will be ruined.
