    Ando Cloisonne Company (安藤七宝店) are a Japanese cloisonne making company located in Sakae, Nagoya, central Japan. Founded in the late 19th century by Ando Jubei (Jusaburo 1876-1953) and his brother in law Ando Juzaemon they made the cloisonne company a huge success. They recruited Kawade Shibataro (1856–1921) a renowned cloisonne artist in his own right to be the head of the Ando Company studio who further developed plique-à-jour technique. During the 30 years of the 20th century Ando company employed over 50 cloisonne artists and the company was given an Imperial Warrant of Appointment to the Japanese court.

    Cloisonne is an ancient technique for decorating metal ware items. Small individual cells are formed from metal which is then filled, making Cloisonne enamel involves filling these cells with powdered enamel which is then fired and polished.

    Enamel (vitreous enamel) also known as porcelain enamel, is a material made by fusing powdered glass to a substrate by firing, usually between 750 and 850 °C. The powder melts, flows, and then hardens to a smooth, durable vitreous coating. The word vitreous comes from the Latin vitreus, meaning “glassy”.
