Description: Fine cast bronze covered vessel, having a cap type cover beautifully decorated with enamel inlay (champlevé), and is a rare example of the work produced in Roman Gaul in the first to third centuries AD. Vessel portion is a hub type form, open bottom, originally may have had a wooden or bronze liner, wide flat flanged rim, lid and vessel is decorated with finely incised bands. Overall rich blue-green patina. The tradition of decorating bronze vessels with enamel ornament had long been part of the Celtic artistic repertoire, and the style retained popularity into the Roman era. The effect, known as champlevé, was achieved by firing a finely ground powder until it was completely melted and therefore fused to the metal background. The majority of objects in this technique originate from the western provinces of the Roman Empire, primarily, England, France, Germany, and northern Italy, although some examples were exported as far as the Black Sea coast in south Russia.
