Les Emaux Cloisonnes Anciens et Modernes
Alexis Falize(Liege, 1811 - Moret-sur-Loing, 1898)
Four chromolithographs by Louis Regamey (1814-1878) illustrate the ten jewels depicted in his original paintings and precede them in the volume. The woodcuts throughout the text, inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, are carried out by his son Felix Regamey (1844-1907).
This seminal publication by Philippe Burty is the first to identify the designer Alexis Falize and the enameller Antoine Tard as suppliers of cloisonné enamelled jewellery in the Japanese taste to the retailer M. Martz.
By Philippe Burty (1868) inlaid with a specially commissioned enamelled plaque by Alexis Falize featuring the Shinto deity Jurojin holding a scroll depicting Burty's ex-libris. The book contains 10 original paintings by Louis Regamey of cloisonne enamelled jewels in the Japanese taste by Alexis Falize.
