enamelled (Scope note)

This term is only used in the context of metalwork, and the Material 'enamel' is entered for such records. - The only exception is for European Iron Age material, where the Technique 'enamelled' is entered, but not the Material 'enamel' (See the Scope Note for the Material term 'enamel'). - If the object is simply a sample of enamel, the Technique 'enamelled' is not entered. N.B. The term 'enamelled' is not used in the context of ceramics, where the object is described as, e.g.: 'painted in enamels', or 'decorated in enamels' (with the resulting Techniques 'glazed' and painted') and no entry 'enamel' in Material'.
